Frankfurt-based air cargo ground handler LUG has re-organised its management structure, as it seeks to optimise its ground handling units.
Patrik Tschirch, LUG managing director and chief executive, now leads the expanded LUG network and is responsible for the stations in Frankfurt/Main, Munich, and Hamburg.
The managing director and chief executive officer will lead an expanded LUG network, with COO Nina Strippel heading management of the Frankfurt station, reporting directly to Tschirch, as do Christopher Frank in Munich and Jurgen Vogt in Hamburg.
Tschirch said in a statement: “I am convinced that there is a lot of potential in an even closer cooperation between the three LUG stations. We want to offer airlines a one-stop-service for professional airfreight logistics with three stations in Germany. We have not yet leveraged all synergies and taken advantage of the increasing digitalisation of our industry.
“The future belongs to network organisations with entrepreneurially independent units that respect the same values, principles, and rules, and operate to equivalent standards. A selective expansion of services and optimisation of infrastructure will further strengthen this network.”
LUG is currently extending its Health Care Center (HCC) in Frankfurt by a further 190 sqm and driving forward the TAPA B certification of the Munich station. Both projects are due to be completed by the end of 2018.
