The goals for Frankfurt Airport were given by Lufthansa Cargo AG at Transport Logistic 2023 in Munich. Future plans call for Frankfurt to rank among the most significant e-commerce hubs in the world. Lufthansa Cargo is actively promoting the expansion of the eCommerce business at Frankfurt Airport along with its subsidiaries, logistics service provider Heyworld, and customs broker CB Customs Broker.
Ashwin Bhat, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo, stated, “We obviously experience and view eCommerce as a rising area. “The tenacity and speed of the supply chain are key success factors for online trade. By providing integrated, comprehensive solutions for shipping, customs clearing, and the subsequent conveyance of eCommerce cargo, we hope to establish Frankfurt as a market leader in this area. Through its subsidiaries and partners, Lufthansa Cargo is concentrating on innovative software solutions and increasing the capacity of its eCommerce centre in Cargo City Nord, in addition to growing its European medium-haul network and adding two more A321 freighters to its fleet.
According to Boris Hueske, Managing Director of Heyworld, “Our eCommerce hub at Frankfurt Airport enables us to meet growing customer demands for fast deliveries.” “As a logistics partner, we enhance Lufthansa Cargo’s offering with cutting-edge software and forwarding solutions that greatly expedite the clearance and subsequent transportation of eCommerce shipments.”
“At the Frankfurt location, our new software solution is a great driver for online trade. According to Uwe Glunz, Managing Director of CB Customs Broker, “with this technology, eCommerce shipments may be cleared much more easily and subsequently processed faster overall. The solution can be customised and docked onto customers’ existing logistics management systems using API interfaces. This streamlines and expedites the exchange of information and paperwork necessary for customs clearance.
