Swissport opens Frankfurt warehouse and Pharma Center

Today, Swissport Cargo Services Germany has started operations at its brand new 17,000 sqm facility at Frankfurt Airport. With the new building, Swissport increases its handling capacity by about 50% compared to the former facility at Frankfurt´s Cargo City South logistics district. The integrated Swissport Pharma Center covers 1,560 sqm, expanding the space reserved for temperature-controlled shipments by a factor of seven.

1,300 sqm are dedicated for shipments which require a 15°C to 25°C storage temperature, 260 sqm are available for pharmaceuticals in the 2° to 8°C range. An additional 2,400 sqm of office space will be available for the head office of Swissport Cargo Services Germany and administrative and operational roles. The building will also be home to the operations offices for Air France-KLM, Swissport’s main customer in Frankfurt. The warehouse, locally known as FRA544, was built in time in less than a year after the ground breaking in November 2019.
