Clever IT means more freight throughput for Lufthansa


Lufthansa Cargo says it will be able to handle more cargo in the same facilities more punctually thanks to a new production planning and control (PPC) system. Based on DELMIA Quintiq -part of Dassault Systèmes- software and Ab Ovo’s industry expertise, it enables it to maximize capacity of workstations and improve the flow of freight and cargo through the main hub in Frankfurt. It also improves the quality of planning and visibility with smart algorithms.

It assists in scheduling the break-down of incoming cargo and the build-up of outgoing freight for onward transport by truck or flight and helps spread the workload better between peak and off-peak hours.
