Last year the figure was 365000 tons.

Though leaving Europe’s single market is affecting cargo activity and a decrease is expected in this activity this year but the aforesaid airport has recorded gains in freight operations. Over a million individual parcels with other goods are handled in a night and this clearly pointing towards the major contributor in this transportation.

There are companies which provide specialized services for this kind of delivery and offer good rates to the big online sellers.
