Cargo handler LUG realigns to meet market challenges

LUG Aircargo has realigned its management team to tackle future market challenges, says the German handler.
A new strategic product development department is headed by current operations manager Wolfgang Voigt, while Axel van Hees has been promoted to manager of operations at the Frankfurt station.
LUG managing director and chief executive Patrik Tschirch said: “Our aim is to maintain our position of excellence (as a) pioneer in air cargo handling. We want to grow again and offer our customers an even more comprehensive service portfolio.”
He added that LUG was contemplating an expansion of its service offering for airlines such as reservation services and weight and balance calculations.
Van Hees takes over from Wolfgang Voigt as operations manager in Frankfurt but will remain head of aviation security. Voigt and van Hees will both report directly to Tschirch.
Nina Strippel remains manager sales, customer services and quality.
Tschirch said: “Axel van Hees has been with LUG for many years and has accumulated considerable knowledge about our operational processes in this time. We will not only maintain our punch but perform even more cost-effectively and powerfully in future.
“I would like to thank Wolfgang Voigt sincerely for his great services in his previous position as manager of operations. I look forward to laying the foundations with him for a genuine leap into a visionary future.”
