DHL Global Forwarding honored as top customer

Lufthansa Cargo has presented the “Planet Award of Excellence” for the 2017 business year

Lufthansa Cargo presented the “Planet Award of Excellence” to DHL Global Forwarding in Frankfurt, Hesse, on Thursday. The air and ocean freight specialist of Deutsche Post DHL Group based in Bonn has thus won the award for the fifth time – a top value in the history of the prize.

“With DHL Global Forwarding we combine a highly professional cooperation at all levels, which is characterized by mutual respect and trust. This is also reflected in the very strong growth over the last two years under intensive use of our special products. DHL Global Forwarding was also our top-selling customer worldwide - in the past business year and beyond,” said Dr. Alexis von Hoensbroech, Member of the Executive Board responsible for Product and Sales at Lufthansa Cargo, explaining the decision.

The award was presented to Tobias Meyer, COO DHL Global Forwarding. “We are very pleased to receive this award again. Our customers in particular benefit from the excellent cooperation with Lufthansa Cargo, which has been outstanding for many years. And that in turn contributes sustainably to our joint success,” Tobias Meyer said.

Lufthansa Cargo's Global Partnership Program is a central platform for the sustainable growth of Lufthansa Cargo and its largest customers. The eleven Global Partners, which in addition to DHL Global Forwarding also include CEVA, Dachser, DB Schenker, DHL Express, DSV, Expeditors, Hellmann, Ku?hne+Nagel, Panalpina and UPS, account for around half of Lufthansa Cargo's revenue. The Global Partner Council was now held for the 20th time and annually brings together the top managers of the world's leading freight forwarders with the Executive Board and management of Lufthansa Cargo at various locations. The “Planet Award of Excellence” has been presented by the Council since 2002.
