Thai Airways International has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Munich Airport to establish a Thai perishables distribution center in Europe.

The establishment of the Thai Perishables Distribution Center at Munich Airport has been made possible through a joint cooperation with the Thai AirFreight Forwarders Association (TAFA), Munich Airport International, and Cargogate Flughafen Muenchen. The center will aid distributing Thai agricultural products into Europe and South East Europe.

Agricultural products sent from Thailand will receive cooperation from the Thai AirFreight Forwarders Association (TAFA) and THAI through an operational management and temperature control cargo system at THAIs Perishable Center at Suvarnabhumi Airport, through to arrival in Munich, with cooperation of the four companies concerned.

Cargogate also proposed designs for the Perishables Distribution Center for fresh fruit and produce, with development of the business plan. TAFA members intend to invest in the establishment of the center and arrange meetings with the Thai Government, in support of investment from the Thai private sector in this project and in accordance with the Bavarian Government policy to support and approve of joint venture plans for Thai investors in cooperation with Munich Airport, accordingly.

The role of THAIs Cargo and Mail Commercial business unit will support this project by allocating space for the shipments on behalf of Thai agricultural exporters and set special rates as deemed appropriate for parties sending produce to Munich. The business will also support public sector exports, increasing long-term profitability due to agricultural product exportation from parties using the service.
