The Express Centre targets major courier and e-commerce players globally and is aimed at improving KQ Cargo revenue as part of Operation Pride.
The Centre will be a one stop shop for airlines and freight forwarders that will enhance efficiency in E-commerce logistics, electronic customs clearance, and cargo handling services, mail handling and airport ground handling service.
"Our business partners will benefit from express service, meaning: reduced lead time from acceptance to delivery as well as positioning JKIA airport as the preferred transit hub to and from Africa,'' said KQ Express Courier manager Daniel Salaton.
He added that the new Centre would provide an opportunity to offer a wide range of specialised products, tailor made to meet the client's needs.
Salaton said the needs like express diplomatic packages, pharmaceuticals, valuables handling which we hope would attract clients to KQ.
"It is a one stop shop and all parties are under one roof, thereby creating efficiency in the clearing process.''
The project is expected to increase the KQ cargo revenue by more than Sh200 million annually in the next financial year.
The Centre will commence operations from February 1, 2017.
