International freight forwarding group Thermotraffic is opening a branch at Frankfurt Airport next month, adding to its other European branches. The new branch will be located at the Perishable Center Frankfurt, and will include the organization and handling of all transport and warehousing of perishables that are transported by air.
With the new office located at the airport, Thermotraffic has the advantage of being able to move pharmaceuticals and food quickly. The company says its cross-docking services before and after flights between the airport and the destination of the goods will be its top priority.
In February, the company opened temperature-controlled branches in Barcelona and Milan, which it anticipated would give Thermotraffic a better utilization rate of northbound freight capacity. It will offer all of its services with these new branches, including comprehensive logistics services and transport of temperature-controlled food, pharma, chemical products and living plants.
Thermotraffic, which has operated since 1984, is based in Versmold, Germany. The company is certified under the strict guidelines of the British Retail Consortium for Storage and Distribution, for food transports. The assessment covers its fleet, the handling of transports and the company’s management. Throughout 2015, the company is also replacing its truck fleet with vehicles that correspond to the emission standard Euro 6.
