Lufthansa Cargo takes over freight handling for Hermes Transport Logistics in Leipzig


Lufthansa Cargo and Hermes Transport Logistics are intensifying their cooperation. Since early
August, the crane-emblemed cargo carrier has been handling the logistics of all incoming
shipments arriving at Leipzig Airport for the wholly-owned subsidiary of the otto group. Aside from
handling all imports, Lufthansa Cargo is responsible for arranging and loading truck transports to
the Hermes bases at Haldensleben und Altenkunstadt. In future, the freight will be flown direct to
Leipzig/Halle by Boeing 777 freighters in the fleet of Lufthansa Cargo's AeroLogic joint venture or
be trucked by road from Frankfurt to the Hermes bases.
"Our extreme flexibility and deployment of low-emission Boeing 777 freighters make a
convincing case," said Lufthansa Cargo Vice President Handling Germany, Dr. Mohammad Ali
Seiraffi. Our network, customised to our customers' requirements, guarantees the fastest
connections, high cost-efficiency and a host of synergy effects." Eckhardt Fechtner, General
Manager Hermes Transport Logistics, added: "Shorter transit time for shipments and the
environmental benefits resulting, among others, from fewer road service transports within
Germany are major competitive gains for Hermes Transport Logistics. We are delighted to
cooperate with Lufthansa Cargo at our most important distribution centre in Germany."
Hermes Transport Logistics imports more than 14,000 tonnes of airfreight to Germany annually,
principally from the Far East. The shipments consist largely of textiles.
