Luxembourg has a role to play in a growing business

Dedicated companies offer professional cargo handling of sensitive produce and cool zones. Next to the extensive road feeder system, Luxembourg offers specialized players with modern warehouses like Grosbusch and Arthur Welter and dedicated hubs like the Cargocenter at the airport and the new multimodal rail platform in Bettembourg.
Moreover, 70% of EU market can be served within one day and fast lane solutions are readily available as time- and cost-efficiency play a crucial role. Arthur Welter's preloading team at the Luxembourg airport guarantee the preservation of the cool-chain with their trucks ready to quickly load the goods and distribute them from the airport to the last mile in temperature-controlled vehicles. The multilingual service at the airport and easy access to customs and release agencies allow for tailor-made solutions compliant with clients' needs.
Over the past two years, more than 6.4 billion kilos of fresh products have been transported via air on a global scale. The top commodities are fresh foods, perishable non-foods, frozen foods and cured foods. Cargolux alone shipped over 400.000 tons of perishables over the past five years.
