Airfreight wholesaler Air Menzies International (AMI) has opened a new branch at Frankfurt Airport (FRA) as it looks grow in Europe.

From the new facility, AMI will offer services including door-to-door transport on import and export shipments; exports with consolidation and Back2Back; Click2Ship, its platform for express shipments; X-ray screening and warehousing services; as well as customs clearance and documentation support.

AMI said the new office would strengthen its presence in central Europe, “especially as Frankfurt Airport is Europe’s busiest airport for cargo traffic, handling over 1.8 million tonnes of cargo in 2020”.

“The airport has flights to over 300 destinations in 94 countries, enabling AMI to work even more effectively with its worldwide network partners,” the company added.

AMI chief executive Jonathan Clark said: “Increasing our presence across Europe has always been a key component of our growth strategy. Germany is a major manufacturing hub in Europe, making it essential to have a presence there, and as the business capital of Germany, Frankfurt is the ideal strategic location.

“The addition of Frankfurt to our network means we now have 24 branches globally, with more planned to be added in 2022 and beyond.”

Ingo Haupt has been appointed operations manager at the new branch.
