Lufthansa selects WFS to handle cargo at Schiphol

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won the contract to handle both trucked and flown cargo for Lufthansa Cargo at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport from 1 February 2019.
This will add about 30,000 tonnes a year to the 220,000 tones which WFS, the world’s largest air cargo handler, already handles at Schiphol for some 70 airline customers.
Stéphane Scholving, newly-appointed General Manager for WFS in Amsterdam, said: “In awarding this contract to WFS, Lufthansa has clearly recognised that we share the airline’s high-level commitment to quality, safety and security. We look forward to building a long-term partnership with the airline at one of its major European stations.”
