Lufthansa Cargo veteran Carsten Hernig has assumed the position of deputy general manager and vice president production, sales & marketing at Lufthansa Cargo joint venture Shanghai Pudong International Airport Cargo Terminal Co. Ltd (PACTL).

Hernig, previously vice president, Latin America & Caribbean region at Lufthansa Cargo, is responsible for production, sales and marketing at the air cargo terminal joint venture between Lufthansa Cargo and Shanghai Pudong Airport, which was founded in 1999.

He succeeds Christian Haug, who had held this position since 2016. Haug will remain in Shanghai until the final handover to his successor and is currently working to further expand Lufthansa Cargo’s business activities in China.

Hernig has been responsible for various functions in the Lufthansa Group for more than 25 years. He began his career as manager in the sales planning & steering team Asia Pacific in Singapore.

He also served as regional director in Russia and Hong Kong and was responsible for sales and handling as director South Asia and Middle East in New Delhi.

His many years of experience in the field of crisis management, which goes far beyond the technical aspects, also make him a highly valued manager within the Lufthansa Group.

From 2014 to 2019, as managing director of  ULD management specialist and Lufthansa Cargo subsidiary Jettainer, he drove its internationalisation strategy.

“I am very pleased that we are welcoming Carsten Hernig, an experienced Lufthansa employee, to this important interface,” said Dietmar Focke, chief operations officer and chief HR officer at Lufthansa Cargo. “His extensive experience at Lufthansa Cargo, especially in the international arena, makes him ideally qualified for the new tasks.”

PACTL draws on the expertise of three shareholders: Shanghai Airport (Group) CO, Ltd, Lufthansa Cargo AG and JHJ Logistics Management CO, Ltd.
