AMI adds Frankfurt to network

Air freight wholesaler Air Menzies International (AMI) has opened a branch at Frankfurt Airport.

The Frankfurt Airport (FRA) branch marks AMI’s 24th location, adding to a 250-partner strong global network. The opening strengthens AMI’s ability to ensure reliable movement of freight between locations, with oversight of shipments from beginning to end. It is a key expansion for the freight wholesaler, reinforcing its presence in central Europe, especially as Frankfurt Airport is Europe’s busiest airport for cargo traffic, handling over 1.8 million tonnes of cargo in 2020. The airport has flights to over 300 destinations in 94 countries, enabling AMI to work even more effectively with its worldwide network partners.

At its new branch AMI will offer a variety of wholesale air freight services, including door-to-door services on global import and export shipments; exports with consolidation and Back2Back; Click2Ship, its market leading platform for express shipments; X-ray screening and warehousing services; as well as customs clearance and documentation support. Operation manager Ingo Haupt will head up the new branch and its work.

 Jonathan Clark, CEO, AMI said: “Increasing our presence across Europe has always been a key component of our growth strategy. Germany is a major manufacturing hub in Europe, making it essential to have a presence there, and as the business capital of Germany, Frankfurt is the ideal strategic location. The addition of Frankfurt to our network means we now have 24 branches globally, with more planned to be added in 2022 and beyond.”
