Lufthansa to build new logistics centre at Frankfurt
Lufthansa has announced plans to build a modern logistics centre at Frankfurt Airport. At its meeting today, the Lufthansa Group Supervisory Board approved the investment in the necessary infrastructure for Lufthansa’s cargo business. The building, which will replace the existing over 30-year-old Lufthansa Cargo Center, is due to go into operation in 2018. The new logistics centre will be built mainly on Lufthansa Cargo’s existing site in the northern part of Frankfurt Airport. State-of-the-art technological infrastructure will guarantee much faster turnaround times for shipments and will dramatically improve the quality of service for all Lufthansa Cargo customers. Construction of the main building is scheduled to begin in 2014. Lufthansa is investing a mid triple-digit million euro sum in the new logistics centre.
