The main structure of Zhuhai Airport International Intelligent Logistics Park in Jinwan District is already 30 per cent complete and is expected to be fully finished in December.

The terminal not only will expand Zhuhai Airport’s cargo handling capacity, but also will become an aviation logistics service hub on the west bank of the Pearl River Estuary.

According to official sources, once operational its annual cargo throughput is expected to reach 500,000 metric tons.

Located west of Zhuhai (Jinwan) Airport, the project will become China’s biggest single aviation cargo terminal spreading over 10.5 hectares.

Financed, constructed and run by a logistics subsidiary of Zhuhai Aviation City and Airport Group, it is also one of the first eight domestic aviation construction projects funded by private capital.
