Fiege Air Cargo Logistics (FACL) will take over the operative handling and co-ordination of inbound and outbound standard shipments at the Lufthansa Cargo Center (LCC) in Frankfurt, until mid 2021.
The planning and control of the cargo processes as well as the overall responsibility for the processes will remain in the hands of Lufthansa Cargo. The new co-operation will not result in any changes for the cargo airline’s customers. The physical cargo handling processes in the LCC had already been largely outsourced to various external service providers for many years.
“Our future partner contributes additional expertise in the area of digitalization as well as efficient design and implementation of warehouse processes,” said Dr. Mohammad Ali Seiraffi, Lufthansa Cargo Vice President Handling Frankfurt and Head of the LCC. “At the same time, the new cooperation model will reduce the number of direct interfaces for Lufthansa Cargo, enabling us to make optimum use of the advantages of digitization. FACL will be an important partner for us in all aspects of physical handling at the Frankfurt hub.”
“We look forward to contributing our expertise in digitization to the Lufthansa Cargo Center as part of a long-term cooperation,” said Felix Scherberich, Managing Director at Fiege. “We will help to further enhance the operational quality and synchronise the logistics processes in ground handling with the modernised IT infrastructure of the LCC.”
