With a new Air Cargo Logistic area under construction, Halifax Stanfield will add new cargo apron areas, buildings for cargo handling, and an aircraft de-icing facility. These additions lead to the potential for increased supply chain opportunities for businesses located in East Hants. Companies currently involved in servicing businesses at the airport can benefit from locating to East Hants, with the potential for decreased costs in transportation and access to those customers, and lower development costs.
