United Cargo cuts the ribbon on new EWR Facility

United Cargo Newark Liberty International Airport Facility

Last week, the United team hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for their new, 165,000-square foot cargo facility at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

Jan Krems, Cargo President said: “We are the number one cargo carrier in the world, and with warehouses like this one, we can truly outperform even more.

“With this new space, we will successfully serve the Newark area and customers worldwide even better than before.”

The new facility increases their cargo availability to a net gain of more than 77,000 sq. ft. in facility space, giving one of their highest revenue entities even more space to manage busy cargo operations.

Our cargo facility on airport property is 154,000 square feet, giving us a total of 319,000 square feet of extra cargo space at EWR.

Mike Hanna, EWR and IAD Airport Operations SVP said: “This investment in EWR is incredibly important because it’s such a critical hub for us across the network.

“It’s not only one of our most important hubs, but a gateway to the world as we serve 61 international destinations.

“As one of the largest employers in New Jersey, we want to invest in the fabric of the community — making sure we partner with local companies across the tristate area.

“We’re continuing to make great investments in this hub as the New Jersey hometown airline.”
