A new logistics center for disaster control is being built at Leipzig / Halle Airport as part of an EU program. The location in the vicinity of the airport is being set up and looked after by the German Red Cross.
The EU and the Member States are setting up logistics centers in order to be able to meet the growing needs of the health sector even in crisis situations. In addition to the procurement, storage and maintenance of protective equipment, the logistical distribution is also organized via the logistics centers. “The decision to set up the EU logistics center at our airport is a logical one. It rewards our commitment to optimal conditions at the Leipzig / Halle air freight hub. We are proud to be making our contribution to humanitarian aid and feel encouraged to continue doing everything we can to ensure that we are flexible in getting all types of cargo into the air, ”said Götz Ahmelmann, CEO Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG.
