MVD Free Airport State-of-the-Art Reception Area to begin April 2019

 

MVD Free Airport has finalized the executive project and is ready to commence the construction of a new, state-of-the-art cargo reception area on April 2019. This includes over 700m2 of reception area, including automated data capturing mechanisms for both photographic documentation and x-raying of 100% of the airfreight handled. This is a significant milestone in South America in terms of providing the conditions for an automated, traceable end-to-end distribution in the region.

“We are definitely excited about what is to come” mentioned Alfonso Diez de Medina, Senior Operations Manager at MVD Free Airport. “We recently implemented a tailored software for all operations that have allowed for the digitalization of company internal processes, greatly reducing the margin of error as well as contributing to an increased overall efficiency”, he argued. “With this new reception area we are able to further organize our operational flows and capture the exact conditions in which the cargo was received, putting this information at the disposal of the client”, he concluded.

With the new reception area to be concluded in Q3 2019, MVD Free Airport continues to strengthen its positioning as a competitive point of entry to South America via its GDP certified premises, state-of-the-art infrastructure and revamped information systems that provide clients with certainty and ownership.

 

 

MVD Free Airport is part of Corporación America, the parent Company that also manages the concessions of the Carrasco International Airport and Punta Del Este Airport in Uruguay, alongside over 50 airports and 10 cargo terminals in 10 countries across 3 continents.

Brussels Airport and MVD Free Airport Sign MOU for cooperation

 

In order to continue sharing know-how, best practices and working together in the development of new pharma certified lanes, Brussels Airport and MVD Free Airport have signed a memorandum of understanding that formalizes their relationship of friendship and cooperation.

 

Given that MVD Free Airport and Brussels Airport Company are both operators of international airports with similar missions to be the best in the accommodation of passengers and cargo and operate as air cargo hubs of regional relevance, they see eye-to-eye with regards to the challenges that global pharma distribution is facing, and have worked on several initiatives including the launching of a GDP compliant route between Brussels and Montevideo to facilitate regional distribution to Brazil, Argentina and the rest of South America via Uruguay.

 

“We’ve felt identified with what Brussels Airport Company has been doing for quite some time” mentioned Bruno Guella, Managing Director at MVD Free Airport. “The way they’ve positioned themselves as a pharma gateway with state-of-the-art infrastructure, pharma-oriented processes and internal quality standards up to par with the most demanding has definitely helped shape our mission and vision. We are happy to be in continuous collaboration with Brussels Airport Company and very excited for what is to come.”

 

“It is great to see companies such as MVD Free Airport who operate in very challenging regional contexts strive for greatness and help pave the way for a safer, reliable and standardized pharma distribution. When we first started exchanging ideas and information we were very pleasantly surprised to learn we were speaking the same language and that a lot could be accomplished together and also being part of Pharma.Aero as well. Today, we are very satisfied with the road we’ve traveled and looking forward to all that is yet to come” mentioned Nathan De Valck, Cargo Development Manager at Brussels Airport Company.
