The Air Cargo Community Frankfurt, the alliance of companies, institutions and associations aimed at promoting the air cargo location of Frankfurt, is constantly developing further and has now been able to welcome two new members: Georgi Transporte and Menian Spedition. As a result, the number of members has grown to 35. They represent all the areas of the air cargo transport chain and contribute their interests and their expertise to the Community’s various Competence Teams. Together they develop measures and projects aimed at the further improvement of operations at the location, and thus, at additionally strengthening the position of Frankfurt as the leading air cargo hub in Germany and Europe.
“The intensive activities of the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt and its members sustainably bear fruit in many areas”, says Joachim von Winning, Executive Director of Air Cargo Community Frankfurt. “We are delighted, therefore, that with Georgi and Menian two further companies are becoming involved in the Community, who can contribute valuable input for the benefit of the entire location”.

Air Cargo Community Frankfurt e.V.
The Air Cargo Community Frankfurt e.V. is an association of companies, institutions and organizations with the clear objective of promoting the airfreight location of Frankfurt. Its total of 35 members includes representatives of all areas of the air cargo supply chain. The association has three working groups “Temperature-controlled Transport”, “Processes & Infrastructure" and "Location Marketing & Community Building", as well as various specialist groups which represent the entire range of services offered at the airfreight location of Frankfurt. The prime objective is that the Frankfurt Airport will, also in future, continue to clearly be Europe’s No. 1 in the air freight business and, as the leading cargo hub, significantly enhance its competitiveness compared with other airports in neighbouring countries. The location of Frankfurt, today with more than 2.2 million tons of air freight (2014) and 11,600 employees in the cargo area, should also continue to grow significantly in the coming years and, in doing so, capture an even larger share of global freight volumes for itself.
