GEFCO invests in new Frankfurt hub

PRESS RELEASE

October 23, 2014: As an expert in complex intercontinental traffic flows, GEFCO is investing in a new air cargo hub at Frankfurt airport in Germany and thereby strengthens its Overseas network, which is made up of 80 hubs and depots around the world. This operation forms part of GEFCO's range of bespoke multimodal transport solutions offered to its industrial clients to adapt to their production constraints and facilitate commercial operations in their strategic development zones.

This new air cargo hub, backing on to Frankfurt International Airport allows the GEFCO Group's clients to benefit from multiple air routes and service options, since Frankfurt has been a major player amongst European freight airports for many years. Air freight cargo from all around the world is handled and received there before being transported to its final destination, especially in Germany or Eastern Europe, as well as all over the world. The hub at Frankfurt enjoys access to air, rail and road transport, as well as a central location, and benefits from modern infrastructure.

Along with those of Paris, Shanghai and Hong Kong, this new hub addresses major industrial challenges: flexible solutions, optimising costs throughout the whole supply chain, reducing delivery time and managing complex global flows

The air cargo hub in Frankfurt allows GEFCO to offer its international clients, especially those from the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), a competitive and reliable offer, by grouping air freight transports for imports and exports in the same place

In Frankfurt, GEFCO offers value added services such as customs clearance as well as solutions which are adapted to its clients from various industries, including the Automotive, manufacturing, health and FMCG sectors.

The Group also offers a High & Heavy transport solution, designed for heavy and bulky cargo: "As a major international logistics player, we execute the most intelligent logistics solutions to accompany our customers' international development," said Marc Motschmann, Global Head of Air Freight, GEFCO. "Our platform at Frankfurt Airport supports our growth strategy in Central and Eastern Europe perfectly, as it offers a modern infrastructure, which allows faster handover processes, short lead times and a complete range of services."
