The fledgling community as such is growing rapidly and now has 41 members from all sectors of the air logistics chain.
Joachim von Winning, Executive Director of Air Cargo Community Frankfurt: „More and more forwarding agents are using the diverse design opportunities available to them through the Community and opt for a membership. We are very pleased about this, especially since we have two real global players joining us with Kühne + Nagel and Hellmann Worldwide. They will make valuable contributions to our Competence Team and the SLV as well. With its hundreds of member companies it now represents an enormous range with us across small, medium-sized and large companies in the region.“

Air Cargo Community Frankfurt e.V.
The Air Cargo Community Frankfurt e.V. is an association of companies, institutions and organizations with the clear objective of promoting the airfreight location of Frankfurt. Its total of 41 members includes representatives of all areas of the air cargo supply chain. The association has three working groups “Temperature-controlled Transport”, “Processes & Infrastructure" and "Location Marketing & Community Building", as well as various specialist groups which represent the entire range of services offered at the airfreight location of Frankfurt. The prime objective is that the Frankfurt Airport will, also in future, continue to clearly be Europe’s No. 1 in the air freight business and, as the leading air freight hub, significantly enhance its competitiveness compared with other airports in neighbouring countries. The location of Frankfurt, today with more than 2.1 million tons of air freight (2015) and 11,600 employees in the cargo area, should also continue to grow significantly in the coming years and, in doing so, capture an even larger share of global freight volumes for itself.
