Swissport Adds Forwarder Handling In Germany

With the launch of forwarder handling Swissport is expanding its service offering in the German cargo market. Effective 15 January 2024, Swissport has become JAS's sole cargo handling agent for Frankfurt Airport (FRA). The two partners have worked on a coordinated implementation to facilitate a smooth transition.

“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,” says Andreas Behnke, Managing Director ad interim of Swissport Cargo Services Germany and Austria. “Combined with our digitalized processes and tools, the new offer allows for streamlined logistics processes and efficient freight handling.”

"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," said Matthias Frey, Vice President Global Airfreight Operations at JAS Worldwide.

Swissport has invested heavily into optimizing its cargo service portfolio. The expansion into forwarder handling is in line with the company’s holistic approach of serving the entire logistics community beyond airlines. Aligned with its M&A agenda, Swissport recently launched the DUS Cargo Services joint venture in collaboration with Düsseldorf Airport, strengthening Swissport’s cargo presence in Germany and reinforcing industry leadership.
