Lufthansa opens new facility for temperature-contollled freight

Frankfurt, Germany: Lufthansa Cargo has increased investment in its temperature-sensitive freight business opening a new cargo centre at Frankfurt Airport.

The 4,500sq metre temperature-controlled Lufthansa Cargo Cool Centre, built in six months, has four cool storage rooms,  each at four different temperature settings, as well as a deep-freezer section.

All temperature-controlled shipments carried by the airline in Frankfurt will pass through the new facility. At the inauguration of the Cool Centre, Lufthansa Cargo’s executive board member for product and sales, Andreas Otto, said: “Our Cool/td product is assuming ever increasing importance for Lufthansa Cargo thanks to growth rates of 15%.

“The Lufthansa Cargo Cool Centre will enable us to ship temperature-controlled freight faster, more reliably and more efficiently at our Frankfurt hub, and further expand our position as a leading provider of cool transports.”

Lufthansa Cargo earmarked substantial capital expenditure last year in the Cool/td product.  Besides investing in the development of the Opticooler, the cargo carrier commenced operations at its first international pharmaceutical hub at Hyderabad in India.
