Logistique

La création du Port Franc à Maurice en 1992 visait principalement à développer un centre de logistique et de distribution compétitif pour le commerce international. Il est devenu au fil des années une plateforme commerciale florissante abritant des opérateurs mondiaux.  Airports of Mauritius Ltd poursuit la modernisation de l'aéroport international SSR et travaille à la mise en place de l'infrastructure nécessaire pour permettre aux partenaires du secteur privé de développer de nouvelles activités commerciales.

Une nouvelle zone a été identifiée, dans le cadre du Plan directeur de l'aéroport, dans la partie sud pour la mise en œuvre d'une nouvelle zone Cargo et Port Franc afin de créer des installations adéquates en vue d'augmenter le volume annuel de fret jusqu'à environ 90,000 tonnes en 2025. Airports of Mauritius (AML) a alloué plus de 34.6 hectares pour créer des parcelles aménagées qui sont désormais disponibles à la location aux opérateurs et aux promoteurs désireux de mettre en place des installations de fret, de port franc et de logistique.
