New Board at Luftfrachtmacher

Michael Mueller, Labour Director of Fraport AG, has been elected to the Executive Board of Air Cargo Community Frankfurt e.V. (ACCF). Since May he also represents the airport operator in the air freight industry association. The members of the management board also appointed him as deputy chairman.

Frankfurt am Main, 21st May 2019 --- The graduate economist succeeds Anke Giesen (Fraport), who has decisively shaped the work of Luftfrachtmacher in Frankfurt. "We thank Anke Giesen for her impulses and her know-how. She was one of the initiators of our community. Without her, we would not be where we are today”, says ACCF´s Chairman Harold Gloy (Lufthansa Cargo). The new Fraport representative’s election to the community board became necessary because its responsibilities have been redefined. In addition to his role as Labour Director of Fraport AG, Michael Mueller is also responsible for ground handling services, personnel services, internal auditing, and central purchasing & construction. Due to the further development of his responsibilities, from 1 July 2019 on he will also be responsible for the airfreight business. "The airport operator focuses increasingly on the subject of freight. We hope this will give us a strong impetus for our work”, Joachim von Winning, the executive director of the community emphasizes. Michael Mueller is involved in the Airport’s Foundation “Pro Region” and member of the Provincial Committee for Vocational Training. Both focus on training young people and professionals. "This combination helps Michael Mueller think outside the box, from which our community will certainly benefit", says Harald Gloy. The support of the ACCF’s member companies with impulses for recruiting specialists and the profiling of employer brands in Frankfurt is in fact a focus topic for 2019. The exchange of ideas among the member companies is one of the very key elements of this community: it thrives on the commitment of its members. They define interfaces for cooperation and pool their resources for the implementation of innovations, for solutions that are not just drops in the ocean.

About Air Cargo Community Frankfurt e.V.

The Air Cargo Community Frankfurt e.V. is an association of companies, institutions and organisations with the clear objective of promoting the airfreight location of Frankfurt. Its total of more than 50 members includes representatives of all areas of the air cargo supply chain. The association has five competence 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 community of Frankfurt. The prime objective is that Frankfurt Airport will, also in future, continue to clearly be Europe’s No. 1 in the air freight business and, as the leading cargo hub, significantly enhance its competitiveness compared with other airports in neighbouring countries. The location of Frankfurt, today with nearly 2.2 million tons of air cargo (freight and mail, 2018) and 14,000 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.
