CASE STUDY

“Best Carrier” optimizes and automates transport assignments at 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.
