Frankfurt Airport (FRA) celebrated the opening of a new truck parking lot at CargoCity South on 13 March, after one year of construction.  Right behind airport gate 31, there are now more than 70 parking spaces available 24 hours a day for vans, trucks, and semi trailers. Sanitary facilities, including two showers, complete the range of amenities offered for truck drivers.

Fraport AG’s executive board member for operations (COO), Anke Giesen, said: “By creating this special cargo parking area, we are delighted to fulfill a longstanding wish in the airfreight industry to give truck drivers an appropriate place to spend time during their waiting and rest periods at Frankfurt Airport’s CargoCity South.”

This new parking lot is designed, for example, to be used during the periods when truck drivers are awaiting customs clearance or waiting for loading and unloading of their freight shipments at the airport’s cargo terminals.  Active utilisation of the new infrastructure can help to reduce road traffic congestion in the area, especially during peak periods.
