DHL, the world’s leading logistics and shipping provider, has named Lufthansa Cargo together with Swiss WorldCargo and two other air cargo carriers as recipients of this year’s Carrier Award for Reliability and Excellence. Inaugurated in 2016, the DHL CARE Awards acknowledge air freight providers whose services set the industry standard for the transport of temperature-sensitive life sciences products.
“We are very pleased to receive this year’s DHL CARE Award. Carrying sensitive pharmaceuticals fast and reliably to their destinations all over the world is a task that makes us proud. It is also a reason for us to expand our cool center, so that all our customers can benefit from increased cool capacities at our hub in Frankfurt shortly. With valuable innovations like our Cool Control Tower and our long-term experience we will be a reliable partner also in the future”, said Dr Martin Schmitt, Lufthansa Cargo board member and CFO.
The DHL CARE Awards were presented at the 17th DHL Global Life Sciences and Healthcare Conference in Singapore this week, where close to 400 life sciences and healthcare leaders met to discuss major supply chain trends affecting the industry. This year’s DHL CARE Award winners were chosen from a pool of carriers according to criteria including shipment quality, ground handling expertise and innovation in both technology and process. The award recipients all demonstrated extremely high levels of shipment performance, combined with a variety of factors including rigorous certification and bold infrastructural investments.
