About HactlMilestones

Founded in 1971, Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl)commenced its terminal operation in 1976 to meet demand for a consolidated air cargo service in Hong Kong's manufacturing economy. Over the next two decades, Hactl built two air cargo terminals at Kai Tak International Airport to cater for the rapid growth of air cargo within the region. By 1997, the annual throughput reached 1.7 million tonnes.

In 1998, Hactl moves to SuperTerminal 1 at Hong Kong International Airport in Chek Lap Kok. Representing an investment of US$1 billion and capable of handling 3.5 million tonnes of cargo per annum, SuperTerminal 1 was designed and built to do one thing: manage your cargo in the smartest possible way.
