In view of the fact that TIA was emerging as a main import/export interface for the international trade, a study was conducted by Asian Development Bank in 1995. The study resulted in the preparation of a TIA Master Plan for the year 2000, 2005 and 2015. In respect of the existing cargo building, the major problem addressed and taken into account during the formulation of the master plan was the 'scattered and inadequate cargo facilities at three different locations'. Total floor area covered by these three facilities stood only at 3500 sq. meters. Therefore, in view of problems with cargo safety, cargo building capacity and cargo handling management, the construction of a centralized Air Cargo Complex was inevitable. Brought in operation since 2058/9/2
