Recognition of successful cooperation worldwide and commitment to digitalization and sustainability initiatives
During this year’s Global Partner Council (GPC), Lufthansa Cargo honored the international logistics and transport company Kuehne+Nagel with the “Excellence Award 2022”. It is the 25th time that a partner has been honored with this award. The Global Partner Council is an annual industry gathering hosted by Lufthansa Cargo and took place in Madrid this year.
Lufthansa Cargo and Kuehne+Nagel have a long-standing and trusting cooperation in freight business, both within Europe and worldwide. For many years, Lufthansa Cargo has been cooperating with Kuehne+Nagel to ensure professional transport of urgent, valuable and temperature-sensitive goods for its customers. The two transport companies also work closely together to effectively promote digitization and sustainability initiatives in the air freight industry. For example, in recent months 100 per cent transportation of paperless shipments on individual Asian routes could be realized and also the promotion and use of power-to-liquid aviation fuel. In addition, Kuehne+Nagel supports the utilization of Lufthansa Cargo’s A321 freighters in the short- and medium-haul segment.
“I am very pleased to present our Global Partner Kuehne+Nagel with the Excellence Award 2022. Our strong partnership at all levels of the organization provided market opportunities and room for new industry-leading ideas. Together, we were able to expand our market positioning and thus also offer our customers added value in service”, highlights Ashwin Bhat, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo.
Holger Ketz, Senior Vice President Global Air Logistics Network & Carrier Management at Kuehne+Nagel, accepted the award in Madrid. “We are very pleased to receive this award in recognition of our long-standing and close partnership between Kuehne+Nagel and Lufthansa Cargo. This is also an appreciation of our successes in the field of digitalization and in the joint development and use of synthetic fuels as part of our Power-to-Liquid project. But in particular, it underscores our long-standing and extremely successful cooperation with Lufthansa Cargo in our home market of Germany, on the basis of which we will further intensify our global collaboration with Lufthansa Cargo,” said Holger Ketz.
