Air cargo quality standards group Cargo iQ has welcomed newest member LOT Polish Airlines (LOT) to its ever-expanding community.
As a member of Cargo iQ, LOT aims to help create and implement the highest global quality standards in the cargo sector and to differentiate as a reliable partner of choice in an increasingly competitive industry landscape.
“LOT has a precise vision of innovation and continuous development, and we recognize Cargo iQ as a first league community which provides a gateway to achieving this,” said Michał Grochowski, Cargo and Mail Director, LOT Polish Airlines.
“Our goal remains unchanged in our desire to be more present in global tenders with quality freight forwarders and we hope to be recognized as global best-in-class for quality in the cargo business.
“That is why we invest our resources in acquiring IATA CEIV certifications, as well as being part of Cargo iQ, as indisputable proof of quality.”
LOT has been flying since 1929, and as one of the longest running airlines in the world it has withstood significant changes, with the advent of the 21st century and the arrival of a competitive global environment where cost and service optimization are the name of the game.
The airline joins Cargo iQ with the goal of staying ahead of the curve in a continually changing industry, looking initially to address current challenges related to electronic data exchange, both internally and collaboratively with partners’ operating systems.
“LOT Polish Airlines shares in our vision for enhanced data visibility and improved quality in the global supply chain and will begin working together with other Cargo iQ members towards this goal,” said Lothar Moehle, Executive Director, Cargo iQ.
“As our members progress towards 100 percent reporting in the end-to-end shipment process, and we continue to develop and implement quality standards for global airfreight, the Cargo iQ name is becoming synonymous with quality in our industry.”
The onboarding of LOT follows the recent addition of new members Avianca Cargo and airline IT solutions provider Hitit this July, representing significant growth for the organization.
