Following the expansion of the partnership with JAS Worldwide at Frankfurt Airport, Swissport now also provides freight forwarder handling in Germany.

The new service complements Swissport’s existing portfolio of air cargo services for airlines and will now be rolled out globally across the company’s network.

Swissport first expanded into Forwarder Handling in Austria where it has been offering the service in Vienna and Graz since 2010 and 2016, respectively.

In view of consistently strong demand and an overwhelmingly positive market response, the new offering will now be integrated into Swissport’s standard service portfolio globally.

Andreas Behnke, Managing Director ad interim of Swissport Cargo Services Germany and Austria says: “By offering forwarder handling we are contributing to our customers’ value creation and can also eliminate third-party involvement, which translates directly into time and cost savings for our customers.

“Combined with our digitalized processes and tools, the new offer allows for streamlined logistics processes and efficient freight handling.”

Swissport is actively developing commercial relationships with cargo forwarders to generate new business.

Matthias Frey, Vice President Global Airfreight Operations at JAS Worldwide said: “We are pleased to solidify another partnership with Swissport through this new ground services agreement.

“Given their exceptional service record, particularly in JAS’s Pharma sector, we are confident in Swissport’s ability to deliver the same level of excellence at Frankfurt Airport”.
