Lufthansa Cargo re-signs for innovation scheme

Lufthansa Cargo has signed up to once again participate in a scheme to identify companies with innovative ideas that could be applicable to the air cargo supply.
The Logistics Tech Accelerator programme from US firm RocketSpace helps identify and select young technology companies to help bring their ideas and visions of the future to life by matching them with companies willing to invest or provide help.
Lufthansa Cargo vice president of digitisation Boris Hueske said: “Digitisation will have a decisive impact on the future of the logistics industry. Lufthansa Cargo is driving this change.
“We are pleased to take part in this promising programme again as part of our innovation process and are thereby taking advantage of this opportunity to further expand our network with innovative market players in the digital field.”
Under this programme, Lufthansa Cargo is offering developers of digital logistics solutions an insight into the industry so that they can quickly bring their ideas to life.
“We are expecting shared innovative solutions which we can ideally make ready for the market,” said Hueske.
Interested startups from the logistics sector can read about the conditions of participation and requirements and apply by November 16 at http://info.rocketspace.com/logistics-tech-accelerator.  
Lufthansa announced its participation in the first round of the scheme in April.
Recently, IAG launched a similar accelerator programme named Hangar 51, although this extended beyond just cargo.
