Chicago Rockford International and Cologne Bonn airport have announced that they have signed an Airport Co-operation Agreement.

This is aimed at mutually developing the air cargo traffic between their two regions. The partnership will strengthen the knowledge sharing between these two strong cargo service airports and support the collective air cargo reach of each airport. Additionally, the airports expect to work on cutting-edge initiatives to develop high quality handling systems for ecommerce cargo.

The agreement is a catalyst for both airports to further optimize their burgeoning air cargo business. Joint goals include attracting additional cargo airlines, alleviating on-ground challenges and enhancing the movement of products quickly to their final destinations.

Additionally, both stations have agreed to support current cargo customers by evaluating processes and procedures. This should make ground and cargo handling more efficient and shorten the delivery times for logistics companies.
