Due to COVID-19 reducing staffing levels, Lufthansa Cargo has set a transit embargo for Frankfurt for cargo shipments from USA & Canada and Europe—including Germany.
What does this mean?
All shipments from the regions Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa as well as Latin and South America (also via Frankfurt) are not affected.
The following shipments can continue to fly:
- All shipments to/from Frankfurt. Direct deliveries as well as outbound deliveries in Frankfurt are still possible.
- All BUP, VAL, AVI, HUM, LHO, BXO, ZXO shipments, same-day delivery, mail and active temp control units.
- All shipments routed via our other HUBs in MUC, VIE and BRU as these hubs are not affected and are operating normally.
- Cargo that has already been accepted by us will be handled as soon as feasible.
Shipments that are not flying areloose freight—via the Frankfurt hub from USA & Canada and Europe, including Germany—that has not yet been delivered can no longer be accepted by Lufthansa Cargo and transported in a timely manner.
If you have any questions about how this may impact your shipments, please reach out to your Mohawk Global representative.
