Excursion to DHL at the Leipzig Air Hub

Part of the compulsory module "Internationaler Frachtluftverkehr" is held in the form of a series of lectures by the DHL manager Mr. Riccardo Kämpf. The students were able to observe the theoretical knowledge they had gained in practice and live at Leipzig Airport. 

During this exclusive tour, the students were introduced to a wide variety of processes within the hub's parcel handling operations. First, there is an extensive drive across the apron to go over the handling at the aircraft and to take a quick look inside the hangar. Afterwards, the students were allowed to take a closer look at the offload and reload as well as the sorting systems. There was also a brief insight into customs clearance and the handling of hazardous goods.
