Air Menzies International (AMI), the leading air freight wholesaler, is pleased to announce the opening of its new branch at Frankfurt Airport (FRA), as it pursues its growth strategy across Europe.
The branch marks AMI’s 24th location, adding to an extensive global network which includes 250 network partners. The opening further reinforces AMI’s ability to ensure the reliable movement of freight between AMI locations, with oversight of shipments from beginning to end.
It is a key expansion for the freight wholesaler, strengthening 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 be offering 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.
The new branch is being led by Ingo Haupt, who has an extensive career in freight forwarding, spanning over 25 years with TNT, Japan Airlines, Envirotainer and Nagel Airfreight.
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.”
