Air cargo business booming in Spartanburg County
SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — A new air cargo service is booming between South Carolina and Germany. The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported (http://bit.ly/2fWwxEh) that the “Atlantic Bridge” cargo service between the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport in Greer and Germany is a success after just six round trips. Officials want to expand the twice-a-week service.
But airport officials said Monday they need more warehouse space and parking space for planes. The service using a Boeing 747-400 cargo jet started Nov.
5. The service was started by the German company Senator International.
It brings the cargo jet from Europe to Greer on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The goods are then delivered to companies in the Upstate and elsewhere in the Southeast. BMW is the biggest customer of the new service.
