Holy Mackerel! Oslo Reels in Seafood Center
Norway’s Oslo Airport is positioning itself as a preferred cargo hub by adding seafood transportation to its menu. Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) and Sjømatterminalen AS will operate the new Seafood Center at Oslo Airport, which will handle up to 250,000 tons of seafood annually. The facility is designed to meet industry requirements for cool chain logistics and innovation.
In 2018, Norwegian seafood shipments are expected to reach approximately 230,000 tons, making Oslo Airport the largest freighter airport in Northern Europe, with 14 cargo airlines calling at the airport weekly.
Construction on the new seafood terminal is expected to begin in April 2019, with plans for a 2021 opening.
