Lufthansa Cargo distinguishes DACHSER
Logistics group receives coveted “Planet Award of Excellence” for first time
Success for DACHSER at the Global Partner Council, the annual summit meeting of Lufthansa Cargo’s largest customers and the senior management of Europe’s leading cargo airline. The Kempten-based logistics company has won the “Planet Award of Excellence” for the first time. The presentation of the award by Lufthansa Cargo acknowledges DACHSER’s outstanding performance in their global cooperation.
DACHSER flew the highest market share of all Global Partners with Lufthansa Cargo last year. The company was also praised for the stability and sustainability of the close business relations over the past years. DACHSER impressed last year with growth in all Lufthansa Cargo special products: temperature-sensitive freight and perishables, living animals, express shipments, dangerous goods and valuable freight.
Dr. Alexis von Hoensbroech, Lufthansa Cargo Executive Board Member for Products & Sales also commended the great innovative strength of DACHSER: “Together we have succeeded in optimizing our interfaces and processes very successfully and we are highly pleased that DACHSER belongs to our most active e-channel users. In addition, DACHSER was one of the first Global Partners to join the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt, thus consolidating the position of Frankfurt as a major air cargo hub. All of these things result in the very highest quality standards for our mutual customers and earns them the Planet Award of Excellence.”
The award was presented in Hamburg and accepted on behalf of DACHSER by Thomas Reuter, Chief Operations Officer Air & Sea Logistics, and Timo Stroh, Head of Global Air Freight. “We are very proud that our outstanding cooperation with Lufthansa Cargo has earned us this award and highly pleased to be distinguished by one of the leading cargo airlines worldwide. We provide an extremely high standard of quality together, that can be experienced by our customers every single day, and the Planet Award of Excellence not only acknowledges this, but also serves as motivation for the continuation and perfection of our successful cooperation in blue and yellow,” stated Reuter.
The Lufthansa Cargo Global Partnership Programme is an important platform for sustainable growth at Lufthansa Cargo and its largest customers. The 12 Global Partners, which besides DACHSER, also include Agility, CEVA, DB Schenker, DHL Express, DHL Global Forwarding, DSV/UTi, Expeditors, Hellmann, Kühne+Nagel, Panalpina and UPS account for about half of the revenue at Lufthansa Cargo.
