Lufthansa Cargo adds ground link to flower hub

German freight carrier Lufthansa Cargo has established a new direct trucking connection to its home hub of Frankfurt International Airport from Aalsmeer, the Dutch town which lies to the south of Amsterdam, close to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Schiphol, and which is home to the world’s biggest flower auction. Aalsmeer handles the daily trade of as many as 20 million flower stems.
The next-day service from Aalsmeer gives shippers and forwarders operating there a ready connection to the global network of German’s flag-carrier. Shipments are picked up from customers’ warehouses in Aalsmeer at the end of a business day and then trucked overnight to Frankfurt, an 8-hour journey. From Frankfurt, the flowers can then be flown the next morning to Lufthansa Cargo destinations across more than 100 countries.
