Lufthansa Going Green: Air Cargo Innovation Contest

Lufthansa Cargo is holding a contest inviting people to present their “Green Solutions” to help reduce the cargo company’s environmental impact and improve its services. The contest is open to anyone, no matter where they live, through December 19, 2011.

Lufthansa Cargo will award three winners with a trip to Frankfurt, Germany, where they will get to present their proposals to engineers and management and discuss how their ideas may be implemented. Winners will also receive flight training with a Lufthansa Cargo Flight Captain and other prizes. In addition, a Most Valuable Participant will be recognized, based on activity in the contest, quality of contributions, and support for other members.

Proposals can cover any aspect within the Lufthansa Air Cargo Supply Chain (Sales, Handling, Transport, Customer Service) that fall within the categories of Green Solutions and/or Add On Services. Candidates get the opportunity to receive feedback and exposure from people all over the world, since ideas are posted online where people can review and comment openly.

The jury will meet in January 2012, and the winners will be announced in February 2012. The jury is made up of the following:
• Dr. Andreas Otto, Member of the Executive Board Product & Sales
• Dr. Karl Rupprecht, Member of the Executive Board Operations
• Monika Wiederhold, Senior Vice President Product
• Thilo Schäfer, Senior Vice President Handling Processes
