LUG owner Dettmer takes over Hamburg handler

Bremen-based Dettmer Group has taken over LHU Luft Hafen Umschlag, Hamburg airport’s largest air cargo handler, following the insolvency of its former owner, the Carl Tiedemann Group.
On a statement, Dettmer, which already owns the LUG air cargo handling companies at Frankfurt and Munich, handling around 300,000 tonnes a year, said that “the continuation of the company and the employment of the staff are secure”.
The addition of LHU would broaden its presence in the German air cargo market, it added.
Family-owned Dettmer Group is also active in shipping, container packing, storage and transshipment, rail logistics, tank farms and kerosene pipelines.
Dettmer chief executive, Heiner Dettmer, said:  "The affiliation of LHU with LUG air cargo handling will open new opportunities. The excellent connections of LUG to airlines worldwide airlines will help to raise cargo volumes in Hamburg.”
