Lödige Industries to deliver Swissport cargo handling system for Frankfurt Cargo City Süd

Lödige Industries is set to deliver a modern, fast and efficient cargo handling facility for Swissport’s new cargo terminal in Frankfurt Cargo City Süd. Construction of the new 2900 m² facility is well under way and Lödige Industries has commenced production of the cargo handling system at its manufacturing facilities in Germany and Romania.

The new facility is due for hand-over in the autumn of 2020 and will feature a space-saving and fast automated storage and retrieval system for 115 main deck unit load devices (ULDs) over two levels with an upgrade option to implement three levels. The system is operated by two of Lödige’s proven 15ft elevating transfer vehicles, which the company has installed in close to 50 terminals worldwide.

Björn Ussat, Director Airport Logistics Solutions at Lödige Industries said: “We’re very pleased to support Swissport’s impressive growth goals with an air freight handling system that we know will deliver on their speed, reliability and efficiency targets for years to come and which will ultimately facilitate cargo flows through Frankfurt airport.”

Our selection of Lödige Industries is testament to our commitment to optimum service delivery and our ambitious efficiency and reliability goals for our clients around the world”, said Willy Ruf, Senior Vice President Swissport Central & Eastern Europe.
