Airfreight services at the doorstep of industrial centers – Task Force promotes services in upcoming road show

Hahn-Airport – Frankfurt-Hahn Airport (HHN) is becoming a major gateway for airfreight transportation in the industrial heart of Europe. With its direct highway connections to Frankfurt Airport (FRA) by truck it allows for a much speedier transport of airfreight to its destination. Located strategically at the „pentagon“ of five key countries in Europe (Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Germany), Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is the answer for logistics companies looking for alternatives to congested airfreight hubs like Frankfurt/Main, Amsterdam and Paris.

With its lean and highly efficient ground handling services as well as its excellent transport connections, airfreight cargo via Frankfurt-Hahn is reaching its destinations much faster than through other major airports in Central Europe. As an example, it takes only 1 hour and 45 minutes for the Airport Cargo Shuttle from warehouses at Frankfurt Airport to Frankfurt-Hahn. With its link to the logistic hub of Frankfurt/Main, airfreight can be forwarded to Frankfurt/Hahn quickly and easily. As Frankfurt-Hahn is operating 24/7 without legal restrictions, this allows for departure and landing of cargo plans at day and night. On the contrary, Frankfurt Airport is prohibited from departures and arrivals from 11pm to 5am, while Frankfurt-Hahn is operating around the clock. This allows for a much faster delivery of goods with destinations in Central Europe. At the same time, airfreight for markets outside Europe can be transported from Frankfurt-Hahn much faster than from the bigger but much more congested neighboring airports.
A task force at Frankfurt-Hahn, led by COO Christoph Goetzmann, is now advancing the airport as alternative hub for airfreight. “In the upcoming months, we will introduce our improved service in a road show to all international airlines“, Goetzmann said. A new hotline will allow clients to explore alternative options for airfreight via Frankfurt/Hahn.

With its state-of-the-art facilities, Frankfurt-Hahn is located in reach of major industrial centers in Europe like Ruhrvalley and Rhine-Main Metropolitan Region in Germany, as well as Luxembourg, Northern France and the Netherlands. The industries in these regions comprise the very industrial heart of Europe and are depending on the efficient transport of goods and merchandise. For that purpose, Frankfurt-Hahn is their reliable and powerful partner. With a turnover of more than 58.000 tons between January and July 2017, Frankfurt-Hahn has more than doubled its movement of goods compared to the same period in the previous year.
