Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, with its ideal midcontinent location, is transforming into a major center of global logistics. DFW’s geographical advantage, low total landed costs and speed, create a winning combination for shipping valuable air freight.
As the 5th largest U.S. cargo gateway, air freight connecting between Latin America and Asia moves more quickly through DFW than any other U.S. gateway airport. Over the last two years, DFW has also become the top U.S. gateway airport for truck-to-air freight because of the Airport’s favorable proximity to Mexico. The central U.S. location is also a big driver behind recent growth in e-commerce operations on DFW Airport property.
DFW Airport is also planning to focus development in the perishables sector.
Given total landed cost advantages in several trade lanes between South America / Mexico and Asia / Europe, combined with DFW’s ideal geography, DFW Airport is strategically positioned as the optimal gateway for:
* U.S. and Mexico perishables air freight exports to China, Japan, South Korea and other major Asian and European markets
* Chilean and Brazilian perishables air freight exports to the U.S.
* Inter-regional transit perishables air freight originating in Chile and Brazil destined for several Asian countries, including China, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea
DFW is the lowest cost U.S. gateway for perishables imports to the Central U.S. from Chile and Brazil; as well as the lowest cost U.S. transit gateway for freight from Chile and Brazil destined to Asia.
With seven runways, 24/7 operations, and no slot constraints, DFW is one of the highest capacity airports in the world and handles an average of 1,800 operations each day.
From DFW, 13 air freighters serve 22 global cargo hubs, including eight freighters with service to Asia. Internationally recognized integrators also have operations at DFW.
DFW is also a global super hub for travelers with more than 200 worldwide destinations and serving over 65 million travelers annually. With all its passenger and cargo activities, DFW Airport is one of the largest economic engines in North Texas and creates an annual economic impact of $37 billion.
