Markus Rudolph actually just came to the Lufthansa Cargo Center in Frankfurt to get some photos taken of his newest truck in an airport setting. But then Ramona Pieper approached the air cargo trucking operator holding Lufthansa Cargo’s Quality Q, now so familiar throughout the industry.
Rudolph’s truck, an impressive black Mercedes-Benz Actros, was the perfect backdrop for putting her message in the picture. Following the suggestion of Pieper and her team, Lufthansa Cargo has been working on an IT-based ramp and slot management system for the control of landside customer and system transport since the beginning of 2013.
Trucking competence: truck forwarder Markus Rudolph in the outgoing allocation area in Frankfurt with one of his 35 road feeder service trucks.
It is one of the few airlines worldwide to do so. “Direct Ramp” provides customers with delivery or pick-up slots so that all processes can be perfectly prepared and the waiting times for the trucks at the ramps can be shortened. Forwarder Markus Rudolph is also pleased about this improvement in quality and immediately agreed to an interview with the planet film team for the magazine’s app edition on his experiences as an air cargo trucker.
Quality improvement: the team led by Ramona Pieper, shown here in the truck holding a Lufthansa Cargo Q, has launched a new IT-based ramp and slot management system. It improves the control of landside customer and system transport.
