The 19,000 square-meter (204,000 square foot) facility will handle international air freight and national supply and distribution, according to Schenker. It will nearly double BAX Global and Schenker's existing capacity at DFW International Airport. The facility will have 78 truck bays, state-of-the-art communications technology, an efficient infrastructure, and security systems.
The Dallas facility is slated to begin operations before the end of 2008. In February 2007, BAX Global and Schenker opened a 21,000 square meter (226,000 square foot) logistics hub at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.
