General contractor, , has finished constructing a large air cargo hub project at 130 South Conduit Avenue in Queen's South Ozone Park neighborhood. The "Terminal Logistics Center", as it's known, is now fully complete and will soon open for business.

The facility has 28 loading docks, capable of handling full-size tractor-trailers, as well as a couple of drive-in doors for smaller trucks. It was engineered with 26-foot interior ceiling clearances and a 50-foot column grid for easy maneuvering. The building is also unique for being the first multi-level warehouse on the East Coast.

Although the project comes a bit late due to covid-related slowdowns over the past couple of years, the new hub is ready to go now and should open its doors within the next month or two.
