When freshness is crucial.
Imagine: Whole shipments of roses from Kenya have to be transported to major international markets in perfect condition, and they must open just as they reach their destination. All year long, fresh-caught Norwegian salmon must reach points of sale all over the globe so that it can be served fresh on consumers’ tables. In both cases, freshness is indispensable. In both cases, the answer is Fresh/td by Lufthansa Cargo.
