NEW CARGO CUSTOMS REQUIREMENTS ADD TO THE STRAIN AT FRANKFURT

2021-12-28

Cargo shipments at Frankfurt Main Airport are continuing to face delays as a result of high demand and new
customs procedures for imports.
The latest figures from Europe's busiest cargo hub show that demand at the airport continues to surge. Meanwhile, new import rules are contributing to the issues and are slowing down the processing of cargo. The new requirements mean that each individual house air waybill, has to be pre-registered with customs individually and as a result customs clearance waiting times have increased.

The ground handling situation at the airport remains critical, in addition to the customs issue, there are delays in the global supply chains and the high freight volume. Additional storage and handling areas have been set up at Frankfurt Airport's CargoCity South by using three other warehouses as a contingency with partners. Passenger and freight airlines often schedule flights at very short notice. On occasion, this leads to isolated but sharp peaks in volume during the course of any given day and on weekends.
