Lufthansa Cargo and the German Red Cross humanitarian aid organisation have signed an agreement to cooperate on global aid transports. This cooperation is expected to simplify and accelerate the preparation of aid flights.
Peter Gerber, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo, stated, “Thanks to the new cooperation, we will be able to transport German Red Cross aid supplies even faster to disaster zones. When every minute counts, strong partners who can work together optimally are needed. We are delighted when we can use our logistics expertise to help get direct assistance to people in need”.
Christian Reuter, Secretary General of the German Red Cross, added, “As Germany’s largest humanitarian aid organisation, we operate in more than 50 countries. We are really delighted to have Lufthansa Cargo on board, a partner we can rely on in a disaster”.
Lufthansa Cargo has been already helping aid organisations to transport relief supplies for disasters. With Network-on-demand, Lufthansa’s cargo arm transports shipments to all destinations within and outside of the Lufthansa network.
