Lufthansa Cargo was represented with an exhibition stand at Fruit Logistica in Berlin from February 8 to 10. The internationally oriented leading trade fair for the fruit trade celebrated its 30th anniversary this year and is regarded as an established industry meeting place for all players from the fruit and vegetable sector as well as those who help shape the value chain from the grower to the retailer.
Lufthansa Cargo specialises in transporting temperature-sensitive agar products as well as fish and meat products worldwide quickly and reliably. The cargo airline thus significantly contributes to ensuring that products reach their destination in top quality. The demand for fresh fruit and vegetables all year round continues unabated worldwide. The past pandemic has highlighted the increasing role of globalisation in the export and import business and in the area of perishables. In 2022, Lufthansa Cargo transported more than 52,000 tons of flowers, vegetables, fruit, fish, meat, and other perishable goods.
Whether exotic fruit and vegetables or freshly caught fish and seafood from remote growing and fishing regions: When transporting these sought-after goods, speed, strict hygiene requirements and temperature-sensitive containers of the latest technology with individually adjustable refrigeration options are essential to send the products on their journey carefully packaged without compromising quality. The time windows between harvesting or catching, loading, transport by freighter and onward transport from the centrally located European hub in Frankfurt to the destination must be kept as short as possible. At the same time, the cold chain is maintained in the best possible way for the goods without interruption.
“Lufthansa Cargo has many years of experience and globally recognised expertise in handling temperature-sensitive goods and perishables. The special Perishables to door service offers Europe’s leading food markets direct delivery via the Frankfurt hub,” said Carolin Gerstenmaier, Head of Industry Development and Leisure Sales at Lufthansa Cargo. “With its Perishables product, Lufthansa Cargo is professionally positioned for transporting perishable goods. Furthermore, with our hub in Frankfurt and the Perishable Center with fast and vacuum cooling facilities, as well as the optimal location to distribute goods in Europe, Lufthansa Cargo is a reliable and experienced partner for the agricultural and food industry,” adds Christian Tippmann, Head of Product, Speed and Service Offer at Lufthansa Cargo.
