rachael.hogg@ultimamedia.comGefco is investing in a new air cargo hub at Frankfurt airport, Germany, in a bid to strengthen its overseas network, made up of over 80 hubs and depots around the world. 

The new air cargo hub will provide Gefco’s customers with multiple air routes and service options. Frankfurt airport is one of Europe’s key freight airports, and offers especially good links to the rest of Germany and Eastern Europe, along with the rest of the world. It has good access to air, rail and road transport, and the hub will allow Gefco to group air freight transports for imports and exports in the same location. 

Gefco has said that its new hub will address major industrial challenges, including flexible solutions, optimising costs throughout the supply chain, reducing delivery time, and managing complex global flows. The company will also offer value-added services including customs clearance and specific services for clients across various industries, including automotive. 

“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,” said Marc Motschmann, global head of air freight, Gefco.
