LUG Strengthens Network Structure

Sept. 13, 2018

Frankfurt/Main, September 2018 ― LUG aircargo handling GmbH has adapted its management organization to a sustainable, future oriented network structure. Patrik Tschirch, MD and CEO of LUG aircargo handling GmbH, has led the expanded LUG network since Sept. 1. He is responsible for the stations in Frankfurt/Main, Munich, and Hamburg as well as for the further development of the network idea. As a result, he has also assumed overall responsibility for sales and all sales relevant topics at all three locations.

Nina Strippel, so far COO, heads the management of the Frankfurt station effective September 1,2018. She reports directly to Patrik Tschirch, as do Christopher Frank for Munich and Dr. Jürgen Vogt for Hamburg.

"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 digitalization of our industry," explains Patrik Tschirch. "The future belongs to network organizations with entrepreneurially independent units that respect the same values, principles, and rules, and operate to equivalent standards. A selective expansion of services and optimization of infrastructure will further strengthen this network."

LUG is currently extending its Health Care Center (HCC) in Frankfurt by a further 190 sq. m. and driving forward the TAPA B certification of the Munich station. Both projects are due to be completed by the end of 2018.
