Lufthansa Cargo has earned  yet another award for it’s “Trophy Case” when the Airforwarders Association presented ‘LH’ Cargo with it’s International Freight Airline award.   The award was announced at the Airforwarders Association’s “AIR CARGO 2013” event held in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Customer service, on-time performance, reliability and security were the criteria that was factored into determining the winner.

On hand to accept the award for Cargo was Achim Martinka, VP The Americas, who thanked the group the group on behalf of LH Cargo:   “This accolade is a great reward for the daily efforts put in by  our team – and, moreover, a huge incentive to continue working on further improvement of our services and performance“.

This is the third time that the award has been presented, with Lufthansa Cargo winning it twice.

For those of you not familiar with Lufthansa Cargo, they are one of the world’s largest Air Cargo carriers who’s route network spans the globe.   Lufthansa Cargo reaches 300 destinations in 100 countries with its fleet of MD-11 aircraft along with the ability to send cargo on board Lufthansa and Austrian passenger aircraft.

For you “avgeeks” out there, Lufthansa Cargo has done a spectacular job in providing fans with great behind the scenes access to pilots, destinations and their aircraft.   Their presence on FaceBook and their dedicated channel on YouTube offers great information, video and photos.

I had the rare opportunity to take a behind the scenes tour of Lufthansa Cargo including their cargo warehouses in Frankfurt as well as being on board on an MD-11 Freighter as it was being loaded for it’s flight.   You can see my posts on this visit here:
