Lufthansa Cargo continues to invest in digital with dangerous goods capabilities

Lufthansa Cargo has become the world’s first cargo airline to make an application available for the digital creation of the dangerous goods declarations (DGD).
The new DGD.online offering, which is also equipped for the future use of electronic DGD, can be used for shipments sent via air, road and sea.
The system can generate electronically signed dangerous goods declarations and send them automatically, complete with attachments such as safety data sheets.
Forwarders and other logistics providers can also be digitally integrated into the handling process, facilitating paperless cooperation.
The validation and convenience features can help accelerate processes and prevent costly errors.
The developers, using input from pilot customers, focused on achieving "a very user-friendly application with validation and convenience features designed to add value".
Lufthansa Cargo head of digital transformation Boris Hueske said:  “With DGD.online, we are further expanding our digital offering and striving to make it as easy as possible for our customers and partners to use electronic services.
"In this way, we can all leverage the potential that digitization has to offer and make air cargo handling even faster and more efficient in the future."
Siemens Healthcare is one of the first users of DGD.online, having already accompanied all stages of the application’s development.
Markus Dess, logistics process planner at Siemens Healthineers, said: “This new application fits seamlessly into our digitisation strategy. DGD.online will have a lasting, positive effect on the productivity of our service delivery process."
