Frankfurt is the centre of cool

[ December 6, 2011   //   ]

Lufthansa Cargo has begun operations at its new Cargo Cool Center at Frankfurt airport. The 4,500sq m facility is equipped with four cool storage rooms for four different temperature ranges as well as a deep-freezer cell and will handle all temperature-controlled shipments carried by the airline in Frankfurt.

Lufthansa board member for product and sales Dr Andreas Otto told guests at the opening ceremony that the carrier’s Cool/td product was growing at around 15%, adding: “The Lufthansa Cargo Cool Center 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 transport.”

Lufthansa Cargo had earlier opened its first international pharma hub at Hyderabad in India.
