United Airlines and Lufthansa plan to enhance their current cooperation on the passenger side to include cargo cooperation by United Cargo and Lufthansa Cargo on routes between the US and Europe. Lufthansa said the parties are discussing a wide variety of possible elements of the planned cooperation to create a seamless network for the shipping industry, including, among others, an alignment of information technology services and warehouse facilities.
“The planned cooperation of United Cargo and Lufthansa Cargo will create a more efficient and comprehensive transatlantic cargo network and increase the choices and benefits available to cargo customers,” the two carriers said in a statement. Implementation of this enhanced cargo cooperation between United and Lufthansa is subject to finalisation of the commercial arrangement and compliance with existing EU and US regulations and necessary government approvals.
The United-Lufthansa Cargo deal is expected to operate in similar fashion to the the tie-up which Lufthansa has with ANA Cargo in which both carriers operate a shared network offering the market metal neutral capacity.
