Spanish company CACESA, a subsidiary of the aeronautical giant IAG (Iberia, British Airways), has moved to Liège airport, where it welcomed its first aircraft from a customer from China, during a seminar organised by the Wallonia Export-Investment Agency (AWEX).
CACESA works in freight and mail transport, logistics and customs administration, and last year achieved a turnover of 42 million euros.
The Spanish SME has just moved to Liège, where it intends to employ a team of five people and send 60 million parcels through Liège airport by 2020. As a logistics intermediary, CACESA believes it can convince operators currently working out of Amsterdam or Frankfurt airport to switch to Liège.

"In Spain, a foreign company would have needed 18 months to set up its business. In Belgium, we were able to do it in four months. We are delighted with this."
