Dynamic airfreight in Frankfurt

[ April 15, 2015   //   ]

German airfreight handler LUG is implementing a new dynamic ramp service and time slot management system at its Cargo City South terminal at Frankfurt International Airport from 11 May. The software automates the allocation of loading bays for the delivery and collection of shipments and road feeder services, allowing users to reserve slots at the ramp in advance by entering their vehicle’s expected time of arrival and other consignment information into LUG’s web-based aiRSS software. The system assigns a time slot and ramp or makes an alternative suggestion if there are no available slots at the requested time. Information can also be updated on the website or via mobile devices and flexible rescheduling is always possible.

Forwarders who use Fair@Link, the Cargo Community System of Frankfurt Airport, to pre-register can continue to do so as the pre-arrival notice is forwarded to LUG and automatically imported into aiRSS.
