“In 2020, the Port Authority established six strategic pillars for continuing to improve and enhance operations at the airport,” said Thomas J.

Kranz Toledo Express Airport.”

Amazon Air’s newest gateway will include an onsite area to sort packages bound for their next destination and will be managed by an Amazon logistics partner, Pinnacle Logistics.

Pinnacle Logistics will utilize the Port Authority’s 65,000 sq. ft. building at Two Air Cargo Parkway for the sorting and handling of Amazon Air’s cargo.

Completed renovations include the installation of 20 new LED high mast ramp lights, resurfacing and LED light installation of the building’s parking lot, reconfiguring gates and fencing, and constructing additional truck docks.
