They were all welcomed at the community group’s general meeting on 13 September.

Air Cargo Community Frankfurt executive director, Joachim von Winning says: “The newest additions to our community show that the close cooperation between all players in the airfreight supply chain at Frankfurt Airport has been recognised as attractive and important.

“Within the community we push this cooperation forward on many levels, for example with regard to digitalization, or to promote a mutual understanding for large parts of the supply chain at Frankfurt Airport. In doing so, we ensure the appeal of our location as Europe’s leading cargo hub.”

Members want to shape the transportation processes at Frankfurt Airport. To reach this goal, cross-industry cooperation is needed, explains chairman of the executive board of the community, Soeren Stark: “We have a lot of intersections regarding the topics and challenges that concern us here at Frankfurt airport. And in these areas we will work on pushing things forward.”
