Second expansion since 2013

July 14, 2015

FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines Cargo has expanded its operations at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). American will now operate a brand-new, 12,000-square-foot facility with new additions to the management team and a fully dedicated staff. This is the second expansion of American’s Atlanta cargo facility since 2013.

The move to this new location within the airport’s north cargo facility will help reduce loading and unloading processing times for customers.

“This new location will allow us to process cargo more efficiently, providing the best possible experience our customers expect and deserve,” said Tom Cartwright, Cargo’s senior manager of field operations. “We are excited that our customers will now benefit from the extensive trucking networking, along with our dedicated facility.”

Cargo service in Atlanta is available for the following American products: Priority Parcel Service (PPS), ConfirmedFS and ExpediteFS. These services include a variety of trucking options to major American Airlines hubs: Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, Charlotte, N.C., Philadelphia and Miami, as well as Raleigh, N.C. Each of these locations offer customers more connecting opportunities to international destinations throughout Asia, Europe and Latin America.
