Lufthansa Cargo: Restructuring of a cargo terminal


Lufthansa Cargo restructures cargo terminal

Lufthansa Cargo is one of the world’s leading companies in the transport of air cargo. With the help of SimPlan’s simulation experts, a simulation tool was to be introduced for the simulation of a cargo terminal (covered area 110,000 m² and adjacent yard areas) at Frankfurt Airport.

The tool should help to answer the following questions: How do you restructure one of the largest cargo terminals in Europe during ongoing operations? Which measures should be started with? How can strategic decisions be safeguarded so that the desired improvement occurs? What are the implications for ongoing operations during the restructuring phases? Where might additional resources need to be deployed?

Realistic mapping of the physical processes of the entire cargo terminal with a flexible simulation tool

flexible use of all areas

simple parameterization of resource utilization (personnel etc.)

control of the simulation e.g. by Excel tables or databases (different periods and scenarios, varying cargo volume)

Possibilities for simulation of future structuring measures as decision support

Restructuring of material flow

Reorganization of processes

Implementation of future ideas regarding infrastructure and processes through modular configuration of the entire system
