FRANKFURT: September 19, 2018. Lufthansa Cargo says it has become the first, and currently only, airline to handle a dangerous goods declaration electronically with a pharma shipment from Abbott Diagnostics on a flight from Frankfurt to Mexico City.

INFR 8The airline says it has made a "significant" contribution to the establishment of the global eDGD standard as part of IATA’s e-freight initiative via close collaboration with the launch of a six-month pilot of the 'INFR8' eDGD platform (pictured).

“We are pleased that the eDGD has celebrated its global launch with Lufthansa Cargo. This underscores our claim to be the industry pioneer in digitisation. There is still so much more for us to achieve here together with shippers, forwarders and airports,” commented Sören Stark, Board member Operations and COO of Lufthansa Cargo.

“Our shipping portal solves a major challenge in the air cargo supply chain, ensuring greater reliability and transparency for all. We are greatly simplifying processes across company boundaries,” explained Ulrich Wrage, CEO of software company Dakosy. His company operates the Cargo Community System at Frankfurt Airport and the Port Community System for the Port of Hamburg.

In addition to Lufthansa Cargo, Panalpina and Fraport AG have been key partners with the Dakosy eDGD launch: “Thanks to this worldwide innovation, the INFr8 platform integrates the shipper into the electronic information chain of the air cargo process for the first time. We expect this to result in shorter check-in times and much faster handling of dangerous goods,” added Fraport AG executive director of Operations Anke Giesen.
