Capital Region Airport Authority to Announce Grand Opening of New Cargo Warehouse
On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, Capital Region Airport Authority Board Chair Chris Holman, Capital Region Airport Authority President & CEO Robert Selig will be on hand for the announcement of the Grand Opening of the Port Lansing Global Logistics Centre.
State’s business and policy leaders hail completion of $6 million project as “Michigan’s Global Gateway”. The Centre includes the shovel-ready commerce park and the new 48,000-square-foot cargo warehouse which will serve the entire state of Michigan and the upper Midwest as a logistics hub for international commerce. The Centre is the first phase in the CRAA’s plan to spur more than $20 million in private development at the 110-acre site during the next decade.
The new cargo facility will function as a freight consolidation center, a general-purpose foreign trade zone, and an import/export incubator, including warehouse operations for companies involved in international trade. The grand opening of the Port Lansing Global Logistics Centre
culminates more than $27 million of investments in infrastructure upgrades at Capital Region International Airport since 2005, including a runway extension, a new U.S. Customs & Border Protection Federal Inspection Station, and infrastructure improvements for the commerce park.
