Lufthansa Cargo 

Since February 2021, an automation module developed by Transporeon  especially for Lufthansa Cargo AG has ensured even faster and more efficient  processing of the approximately 1,600 ad-hoc transports per month that the company carries by road within Europe in its airport-to-airport business. The selection of required carriers, the awarding of contracts and the processing are now largely automated. The air freight specialist thus achieves an automation rate of 95%. The foundation for this successful module launch was laid by 14 years of efficient use of the Transporeon platform.
