Frankfurt freight boost in August

12 / 09 / 2017

Frankfurt airport's cargo throughput (airfreight + airmail) in August rose by 5.4% year-on-year to 181,102 tonnes or up by 4.8% year to date to nearly 1.5m tonnes.

August was a busy month at Frankfurt, with LUG air cargo handling expanding its Health Care Center (HCC) in a 650 sq m first step programme that paves the way for possible expansion to 1,200 sq m.

The company has also recruited Dominik Misskampf as senior project manager to handle the expansion project.

DHL Global Forwarding's airfreight station in Frankfurt also achieved IATA's CEIV pharma Standard.

The second Frankfurt Air Cargo Innovation Lab will take place on September 26-27, 2017 at Frankfurt Airport. Places are still available to book.

Following on from the spectacular success of last year's launch event, leading figures in the airfreight industry, prestigious representatives from transport logistics and innovative start-ups, industry experts and newcomers will again discuss business models of the future.
