Lufthansa Cargo is partnering with IBS Software to digitalize critical handling processes for special products and services like dangerous goods, pharmaceuticals and fresh produce. Part of the carrier’s Mobile Digital Handling initiative, it usess IBS Software’s iPartner Handling solution to provide a single access, easy to use set of mobile and web tools that ground handlers can use to carry out specialised workflows and tasks. The platform also offers digital connectivity options for handlers via APIs and has been designed with future industry initiatives such as IATA’s ONE Record in mind.
Under the first stage of the roll-out, over 30 Lufthansa Cargo stations in Europe, Asia and the Americas will go live, further stations and several new use-cases and enhancements being added to the solution. The first five stations have already successfully gone live.
