German ground handler LUG aircargo has received its CEIV certification from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for both the handling of pharmaceutical products and the infrastructure at Frankfurt Airport’s (FRA) CargoCity South center.
Mathias Jakobi, IATA’s manager of the Central Europe region, said that LUG passed a “strict assessment based on national and international standards, in particular, IATA’s temperature-control regulations and GDP best practices.”
Last year in August, the company expanded its cool chain capabilities at the facility. At present, its health care center offers rooms with varying temperature ranges, between <-18°C, 2° to 8°C, and 15° to25°C.
The company handled more than 285,000 tonnes of cargo in 2017, and currently operates a 33,000-square-meter warehousing facility for dangerous goods and perishable cargo at the hub.
