    Air freight: A factor in quality assurance.

    There are good reasons to choose air freight for the transportation of fresh food. And there are even better reasons to trust Lufthansa Cargo to transport your flowers, fruit, fish, meat, vegetables, seeds or fertilizer. Lufthansa Cargo has specialist knowledge and many years of experience in this area. That is why we can offer you exactly the right transport solution. Short transport times generally extend shelf life – thereby helping you achieve higher sales ratios, particularly for freight with a short shelf life. Food that is hard to store can be delivered on short notice and according to demand without the need to compromise on quality. Air freight supports “natural” ripening, as in the case of mangoes.

    The benefits for you are clear.

    Whether flowers or exotic fruit, whether cooled or uncooled processes: The transportation of perishable goods is a matter of trust and Lufthansa Cargo values the highest quality standards. That begins with keeping interruptions to the cool chain, for example when transferring loads, as short as possible. Of course, transport speed, timeliness and the constant availability of our offer also play a significant role. At our Frankfurt hub, our Competence Team allows us to address your needs personally. Among other things, we deal rapidly with official requirements and take care of the quick registration of freight arriving in the EU and its clearance for the common market. This saves valuable time in the Europe-wide to-door delivery process.

    Innovation for even better service.

    Although our offerings in the perishables sector already meet the highest quality standards, we constantly work to offer you even better service. For example, the introduction of innovative thermal liners, new packaging opportunities and the temp logger have further increased the quality of our offering. The introduction of the new Boeing 777 Freighter for routes from source markets in South America is another example of the ways in which we leverage innovations to optimize our solutions for you at all levels.
