Lufthansa Cargo has now introduced a new service, connecting the flower auction with next day transport on it’s worldwide network to over 300 stations in more than 100 countries.
A new pickup service, especially dedicated to the transport of flowers and plants has started operating straight from Aalsmeer to Lufthansa’s hub in Frankfurt.
The service picks up shipments directly at the customer’s warehouses at the flower auction at the end of a business day (18.00-20.00) and trucks them overnight in only 8 hours to Frankfurt. This means uplift to any of many destinations in the Lufthansa network the next morning and a completely hassle free process for the flower distributors.
