Lufthansa Cargo on Course for Digitization with Freightos
Direct booking is made possible with complex interface programming, for which Lufthansa Cargo uses an Application Programming Interface (API). This is the only way Freightos WebCargo can access the relevant data from the airline directly and digitally.
“EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT DIGITIZATION IN AIRFREIGHT, BUT MOST OF THE TIME IT IS JUST TALK”“
ZVI SCHREIBER, FREIGHTOS CEO
Of course, Global Airfreight Director Schneider is already planning the next step. “It is conceivable that, with our Röhlig systems, we may be able to communicate directly with the booking solutions at Lufthansa Cargo and other airlines too in the future. Then our employees would no longer have to go via the portal. That would have some benefits – we are already holding initial discussions.”
