New multimodal service through Shenzhen and Hong Kong

  17.12.2008    

Lufthansa Cargo is launching its new multimodal AirShip service from Europe to a number of destinations in Australia on 1 January 2009. Shipments flown daily from Europe to Shenzhen and Hong Kong can in future be shipped-on from there by sea to the Australian metropolises of Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Fast and seamless transition of cargo shipments from aircraft to ship is guaranteed by new AirShipCentres in Shenzhen and Hong Kong. Transport from start-to-finish will be operated under a single air waybill number.
“AirShip transport is an addition to our td.Pro service for general cargo. With it, we are offering customers a reliable, high-quality transport solution to Australia, which ideally combines the time and cost advantages of air and seafreight,” said Lufthansa Cargo Vice President Europe/Africa J. Florian Pfaff. "Simultaneously,“ notes Martin Schlingensiepen, Lufthansa Cargo Vice President Asia-Pacific, “we are accommodating growing demand on the Australian continent and strengthening the cargo hub in Shenzhen of our Jade Cargo International subsidiary.”
Cargo shipments currently take between six and eight weeks on the sea route from Europe to Asia. The AirShip service reduces transit time for Lufthansa Cargo customers substantially to between 14 and 18 days. With the multimodal transport solution, they profit additionally from lower costs for tied-up capital and insurance.
