Lufthansa Cargo launches Road Feeder Service Cool

Lufthansa Cargo at Frankfurt Airport

Lufthansa Cargo is developing its cold-chain logistics with “Road Feeder Service Cool” (RFS-Cool), ensuring temperature sensitive cargo is actively and passively cooled or warmed on road links.

It says customers can make binding further onward travel reservations within Europe on the new “Road Feeder Service Cool” for sensitive medication that has been flown into Frankfurt and thereby ensure that the goods remain inside the specified temperature range on this part of the journey.

Lufthansa Cargo is expanding facilities at its Frankfurt Cool Center, making 8,000 square metres available for cool chain cargo, compared to 4,500 square metres when it opened in December 2011, with four chiller rooms for 2-8C, 5-15C, 15-25C and -12 – -20C as well as a deep freeze room and direct access to the apron.

The airline also gain International Air Transport Association Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics certification in 2016.
