China Post Group Corporation and Lufthansa Cargo have announced a strategic co-operation.

Li Xiong, Vice President of China Post Group Corporation, and Peter Gerber, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo, met recently in Beijing and reached agreement on a deepening co-operation.

Initially, the agreement has a weekly scope, involving the cargo capacity of one Boeing 777 freighter on the Shanghai – Frankfurt route. “In recent years, the co-operation between China Post and Lufthansa Cargo has enjoyed a constant growth. The eCommerce business is in a vigorous development. Both China Post and Lufthansa Cargo are now upgrading and innovating the business model. Under the concept of the Joint Freight Operation, the two sides have reached a further consensus on capacity agreement this time. We will jointly build a more stabilised and comprehensive channel of air mail transportation connecting China and Europe,” explained Xiong.

“We are very pleased that the excellent collaboration with China Post, which has been going on for many years, is now gaining new quality within the framework of a strategic co-operation. It also reflects the growing importance of the cross border eCommerce market. Together, we will be able to achieve even more for our joint customers on one of the world's most important trade lanes,” added Gerber.
