Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has become the first cargo handler at Milan Malpensa Airport to be awarded Authorised Receiver status by Italy’s Customs authority.

The approval means freight forwarders can now clear and offload cargo directly at WFS’ cargo terminal at the airport, which offers significant time savings and productivity efficiencies.

Massimiliano Introini, Managing Director of WFS in Italy, said: “We are honoured to have received Authorised Receiver status, which reflects our ability to meet all of the strict requirements of the Customs authority. As the world’s largest air cargo handler, WFS is continuing to grow its services at Milan-Malpensa and will continue to look for these types of opportunities which benefit both our airline clients and their freight forwarding customers.”

WFS now handles 11 airline customers in Milan, including American Airlines, Asiana Airlines, Air Europa, China Eastern, China Cargo, Air Serbia, Ukraine International and BlueAir.

WFS opened a new 8,800 sq. mt. cargo handling terminal in Milan in 2018 capable of handling some 47,000 tonnes a year, and equipped with facilities to support customers’ premium products, such as a dedicated temperature-controlled cool zone for pharmaceutical shipments.
