On the occasion of their general meeting on 13th September 2017 at the IntercityHotel, the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt warmly welcomed their new members. As of now the freight forwarders a. hartrodt, AF Logistik, Bolloré and Hermes will support the work of the community.

An additional member has also joined the group of airlines: BDA Logistics Innovation, specialized in time critical transportation of goods from Europe to Ireland and the United Kingdom, strengthens the ranks of the community. Furthermore, the Air Cargo Community welcomes the University RheinMain in Wiesbaden. Besides the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, this institution is the second university to get involved in the community.

The Executive Director of the Air Cargo Community, Joachim von Winning, feels encouraged by the increasing interest: “The newest additions to our community show that the close cooperation between all players in the air freight supply chain at Frankfurt Airport has been recognized as attractive and important. Within the community we push this cooperation forward on many levels, for example with regard to digitalization, or to promote a mutual understanding for large parts of the supply chain at Frankfurt Airport. In doing so, we ensure the appeal of our location as Europe’s leading cargo hub.”

Together, the members want to shape the transportation processes at Frankfurt Airport. To reach this goal, cross-industry cooperation is needed, stresses the chairman of the executive board of the community, Soeren Stark: “We have a lot of intersections regarding the topics and challenges that concern us here at Frankfurt airport. And in these areas we will work on pushing things forward.” With this in mind the attendees discussed the future tasks of the community in the course of a World Café.
