Cargo Talk - - Editorial -

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.
