LUG aircargo handling reorganises management


LUG aircargo handling has reorganised its management with Patrik Tschirch taking overall responsibility of sales in Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg.

The managing director and chief executive officer will lead an expanded LUG network, with COO Nina Strippel heading management of the Frankfurt station, reporting directly to Tschirch, as do Christopher Frank in Munich and Dr Jurgen Vogt in Hamburg.

Tschirch explains: “I am convinced that there is a lot of potential in an even closer cooperation between the three LUG stations. We want to offer airlines a one-stop-service for professional airfreight logistics with three stations in Germany. We have not yet leveraged all synergies and taken advantage of the increasing digitalisation of our industry.”

He adds: “The future belongs to network organisations with entrepreneurially independent units that respect the same values, principles, and rules, and operate to equivalent standards. A selective expansion of services and optimisation of infrastructure will further strengthen this network.”

LUG is extending its Health Care Center in Frankfurt by 190 sqm and undergoing TAPA B certification in Munich, both of which are due to be completed by the end of 2018.
