Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services (LTLS) has completely restructured its transport network for air freight. By reducing the number of transport service providers and by standardizing processes, transport times can be reduced, flexibility increased and costs lowered. In this context, LTLS has re-tendered its entire air freight business with an annual transport volume valued at 28 million euros.

"Optimizing supply chains and ensuring an optimum supply of spare parts for our customers is our major goal. We can offer our customers tailor-made solutions with the selected service providers," says Dr. Christian Langer, Managing Director of Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services.

LTLS will cooperate with a small number of external transport providers in the future: DHL Global Forwarding and Lufthansa Technik Component Services (Business Unit Logistics) will take over the transatlantic transport services for spare parts and tools. Imports from Asia and Europe are being awarded to four service providers, who will share some 1,000 routes and approx. 30,000 consignments. Expeditors, DLH Global Forwarding, Beijing AOG and Global Airfreight will transport to 20 different countries in the future.

The optimized transport network offers a significant reduction in transit times, since monitoring is performed on an ongoing basis. Collection and distribution are bundled optimally and the communication processes reduced owing to fewer transport providers.

In addition to transporting routine consignments, time-critical consignments, such as Aircraft on Ground shipments as well as hazardous goods, will also be transported. Close attention was also paid here to ensuring that all service providers have the necessary approval.
