Something cool is coming to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport this summer that could make the airport an even bigger hub for cargo.

AirLogistix USA will build a temperature-controlled warehouse at the airport that will handle medications, perishable food, and flowers, the Dallas Business Journal reported.

DFW Airport already handles 66 percent of the air cargo in the state and has upped its cargo tonnage 18 percent in January, according to the DBJ. This cold chain facility will only increase that volume. 

“There are tremendous growth opportunities for domestic and international cargo customers to ship perishables through DFW to 180 markets,” said John Ackerman, executive vice president of global strategy and development at DFW Airport, in a release.
