Cargo Market

The Houston Airport System's George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is the 11th-largest air cargo airport in the United States and in 2008 handled over 372,007 metric tons of air cargo. In 2003, Houston’s IAH airport inaugurated the new IAH CargoCenter, a state-of-the-art facility with triple the former ramp capacity and 550,000 square feet of warehouse space.

The new IAH CargoCenter establishes IAH as a major air cargo distribution hub that can easily handle the demands of any importer/exporter business or shipper.
