Central Japan International Airport can handle the transport of extra-large cargo, making it possible to import and export large cargo safely and efficiently.
There are two routes for transporting extra-large cargo in our airport. The main route leads from the seaport to the south side of the airport and is specially for transporting Boeing 787 aircraft parts. The other route, used as a backup route , leads from the seaport to the north side of the airport via public roads.
Unloading Possible at the Airport Seaport
- The seaport is equipped with a pier for safe unloading of cargo.
- A marine crane is available for unloading cargo.
The Pier (Managed by the Kinuura, Aichi Port Authority )
Water depth: 5.5 m
Berth: 100 m × 1
Load capacity: 2 tons/m2
Case Studies of Extra-Large Cargo Transport
Following the Great East Japan Earthquake, we were able to quickly accommodate the import of emergency power generators (20 aircraft’s worth in total) using the special transport route for Boeing 787 aircraft parts.
Transporting Boeing 787 Aircraft Parts
35% of the components used in the Boeing 787 are made by Japanese companies, and the manufacturing plants that produce them are located in Aichi. Transporting the main aircraft parts by air instead of by ship, as was previously done, has resulted in shorter production time and streamlined processes for the Boeing 787. This is one example of how Central Japan International Airport has helped to speed up shipping.
