Lufthansa Cargo stocks up with global project management system

Air freight firm rips out legacy project management applications

Lufthansa Cargo, the air freight arm of Lufthansa passenger jets, has implemented CA Clarity Project and Portfolio management in a bid to improve processes.

The company, one of the largest air cargo firms in the world, will use the system to replace a raft of legacy applications and to hold all its information on project management in one place.

Lufthansa Cargo, which employs 4,000 people and delivers 1.8 million tonnes of freight annually, said it needed to improve workflow and logistics.

The new system also provides resource and financial management - recording capacity and demand, and tallying costs.

Wolfram Martin, head of controlling cross functions at Lufthansa Cargo, said the CA system was chosen based on its "functionality, its high-quality configuration options, and its flexibility".

Last September, the airline group's IT services arm, Lufthansa Systems, opened a major data centre in Welwyn, Hertfordshire, to serve the travel industry. The data centre is hosting applications for clients including Thomas Cook and airline BMI, and acts as a mutual backup site with Lufthansa's facility in Frankfurt.
