With the presence of the Governor of Easter Island, Tarita Alarcón Rapu, the president of the Chamber of Commerce, Catherine Lacord, the president of the DGCA aviation authority, representatives from different island institutions and customers, LATAM Cargo Group’s Director of Handling and Ground Operations, Matias Herceg Llodra, inaugurated the renovated cargo operations warehouse on the island.
After almost a year of remodeling, the company unveiled the structural changes introduced to increase and upgrade its cargo service. The changes focused on enhancing the experience of the customers and inhabitants who utilize its cargo services while protecting the cargo transported.
“Every day, our team strives to provide a level of service that is up to the needs of the community. This new infrastructure confirms our commitment to that goal,” Mr. Herceg commented during the opening ceremony.
Specifically, a new warehouse was built to increase storage capacity and improve cargo delivery and reception times thanks to a more efficient architectural design.
To mitigate the congestion on the street that leads to the warehouse, a customer yard was paved and implemented so that customers can bring in their vehicles, leaving the street clear for traffic.
A number of other changes were introduced to enhance the level of service, such as the new maintenance shed gate, the relocation of the fuel tank, and improvements to the racks and electrical system.
The renovated operations warehouse is now fully operational.
