LTLS takes on complete transport logistics for SWISS
Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) has entrusted its entire spare parts logistics to Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services GmbH (LTLS) as part of a three-year agreement in effect since the beginning of February.
Under the agreement, LTLS will take over all transport services for SWISS everywhere in the world, including standard transports and special services such as the transport of aircraft engines.
Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services will also take on the local handling of material supply at the airline's hub in Zurich as well as at the airports in Basel and Geneva, encompassing packing, customs clearance, shipping and documentation. Moreover, the company will serve as the hazardous goods officer for SWISS, and is responsible in that capacity for the production of hazardous goods documents.
"We anticipate that the support we receive from Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services will significantly improve the performance of our material supply processes and ensure greater transparency in the transport chain. We expect to benefit from a less expensive cost base as well as synergies from the Lufthansa Group," says Peter Wojahn, Chief Technical Officer at SWISS.
