Lufthansa Cargo to expand its Cool Center
Lufthansa Cargo is to significantly expand the Cool Center at its home hub in Frankfurt. Lufthansa Cargo which covers an area of 4500 m2 will be expanded to cover 8000m2 by late summer 2017. The construction work is to begin in February 2017 and all the cool center infrastructure will also be upgraded. “After five years of success, we want more. That is why we intend to further upgrade and significantly expand our Cool Center in the coming year”, said Dr Alexis von Hoensbroech, Lufthansa Cargo Board Member Product & Sales. “The expansion is driven by continuous growth in temperature-sensitive cargo. We are pleased that our customers are benefiting from our comprehensive experience. We want to be their first choice in the future as well”, he said.
IATA had recently awarded Lufthansa Cargo and the Cool Center the CEIV seal for pharmaceutical transports.
