e-Award for cargo handlers by Lufthansa
at its recently held two-day conference titled ‘Lufthansa Cargo in Dialogue’, more than 200 logistics industry representatives were present to discuss the digitisation of air freight. At the event, the airline presented awards to Ipsen Logistics, Kuehne + Nagel, MT Logistik, SDV Geis and Quick Cargo Service. Speaking on the occasion,
Dr. Andreas Otto, Board Member Products and Sales, Lufthansa Cargo said that systematic digitisation of the air freight business and further quality improvements are right at the top of Lufthansa Cargo’s 2014 agenda. “We are collaborating with our customers to ensure that goods find their way through the complex supply chain even faster, even more efficiently and with even greater reliability,” added Otto. In addition to significant investment in a brand new aircraft and state-of-the-art logistics infrastructure, the major expansion of electronic processes is a key element in the ‘Lufthansa Cargo 2020’ future programme.
The Lufthansa subsidiary invited its customers to take part in an ‘e-Award’ for the first time last year. It is aimed at further supporting the rapid expansion of digital processes between forwarders and airlines.
