ANA and Lufthansa promise further cargo integration

Lufthansa Cargo and ANA Cargo have taken the opportunity of the fifth anniversary of their air cargo joint venture to promise the integration of further products in the future.

Currently the cooperation covers standard and express shipments, as well as perishables on the carriers’ routes between Europe and Japan.

The joint venture “is characterised by direct access to more destinations, faster and more frequent connections, and more efficiency due to shared standard processes and one-stop shopping for pricing and bookings”.

Toshiaki Toyama, chief executive of ANA Cargo Inc. said: “We extend our sincere gratitude to Lufthansa Cargo for their supportive partnership of this joint venture’s stable growth, and we will make full commitment to further enhance our valued customers’ convenience with first priority by creating new values under this joint venture.”

Peter Gerber, chief executive of Lufthansa Cargo, added: “We are very pleased to have launched the first air cargo joint venture of its kind together with ANA Cargo five years ago. We would like to thank our partner for the excellent cooperation and look forward to continuing to offer our joint customers many advantages in the future.”

The joint venture began on routes from Japan to Europe and was later widened in the opposite direction. For even more customer benefits, the partners intend to integrate further products in the future and to make their processes yet more efficient and transparent through increased digitisation.
