AGI opens JFK warehouse

Alliance Ground International (AGI) has expanded its operations at John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) with a new cargo building.

JFK’s Cargo Building 22 adds 11,960ft2 of office space and 82,153ft2 of warehouse to AGI’s existing facilities at the New York airport. The new site will become operational on December 1.

Warren Jones, vice president of business development at AGI, said: “This facility will allow AGI to expand JFK operations to our existing client base, as well as enabling us to support new airline customers looking to develop services into the New York region. 

“We expect this operation to create over 200 new full- and part-time jobs and we are excited that AGI is able to be a part of New York’s regional economic growth.”

Last month, AGI opened a new 76,000ft2 off-airport air cargo facility five minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in New Jersey. This will be used to process import freight. The handler is also relocating from its existing facilities at EWR to a 24,000ft2 on-airport facility to handle outbound and export cargo and offer a dual-facility solution to customers.

 AGI recently expanded its North American operations with the acquisition of Maestro International Cargo, an air cargo handling company located in Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Illinois.
