Here at Munich you can take advantage of a large catchment area, a wide range of industries, and a huge consumer market. The economic output of Bavaria and southern Germany is well above the average for Germany and Europe, and this region ranks among the world’s strongest in terms of purchasing power.
With a yearly air freight volume that has now grown to nearly 400,000 tonnes, Munich has become the main gateway to all of southeastern Europe.
Driven by above-average growth in air freight volumes in recent years, numerous expansion projects have been implemented. They include a new express center for integrators (who, like FedEx, UPS and DHL, integrate all aspects of package pickup and delivery), a thriving new EU-approved border inspection post for importing live animals, and a brand-new Cargo Terminal West in addition to the older Cargo Terminal East. Plus ample room to continue expanding as air freight volumes swell.
Being acutely aware of the importance of air freight for Germany’s export-oriented economy, we have explicitly included further development of the cargo business in our strategic planning.
