Richmond International Airport is one of the busiest air cargo facilities in the nation. On average, approximately 140 million pounds of cargo are handled annually at RIC by air carriers, including DHL, Federal Express (FedEx) and United Parcel Service (UPS). These carriers offer a number of shipping, receiving and storage options, including shipments of high-security and temperature-sensitive freight, fast international delivery, and overnight and priority deliveries for businesses and individuals.
RIC's cargo facilities currently offer 750,000 square feet of cargo apron and 142,000 square feet of air cargo warehouse space with direct apron access. Because of its central Mid-Atlantic location, cargo transit via RIC makes sense. Goods shipped out of the metropolitan Richmond area can reach 50 percent of the U.S. population within 24 hours. This translates into more efficient manufacturing, lower costs and improved expansion capabilities for area companies.
