October 16, 2017: Frankfurt-Hahn’s task force is taking steps to ensure that the airport becomes a major gateway for airfreight transportation in the industrial heart of Europe. The airport will introduces its improved services for airfreight in a road show.
“In the upcoming months, we will introduce our improved service in a road show to all international airlines,” informed Christoph Goetzmann, COO.
With its direct highway connections to Frankfurt Airport (FRA) by truck, the airport allows for a much speedier transport of airfreight to its destination. Located strategically at the pentagon of five key countries in Europe (Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Germany), Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is the answer for logistics companies looking for alternatives to congested airfreight hubs like Frankfurt/Main, Amsterdam and Paris.
Goetzmann who leads the task force, added, “A new hotline will allow clients to explore alternative options for airfreight via Frankfurt/Hahn.”
With its lean and highly efficient ground handling services as well as its excellent transport connections, airfreight cargo via Frankfurt-Hahn is reaching its destinations much faster than through other major airports in Central Europe. As an example, it takes only 1 hour and 45 minutes for the Airport Cargo Shuttle from warehouses at Frankfurt Airport to Frankfurt-Hahn. With its link to the logistic hub of Frankfurt/Main, airfreight can be forwarded to Frankfurt/Hahn quickly and easily.
As Frankfurt-Hahn is operating 24/7 without legal restrictions, this allows for departure and landing of cargo plans at day and night. On the contrary, Frankfurt Airport is prohibited from departures and arrivals from 11pm to 5am, while Frankfurt-Hahn is operating around the clock. This allows for a much faster delivery of goods with destinations in Central Europe.
With a turnover of more than 58,000 tonnes between January and July 2017, the gateway has more than doubled its movement of goods compared to the same period in the previous year.
