Cargo iQ, the air cargo quality standards group, has announced that LOT Polish Airlines (LOT) has joined its ever-expanding community.
As a member of Cargo iQ, LOT will 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.
Michał Grochowski, cargo and mail director at LOT, said: “LOT has a precise vision of innovation and continuous development, and we recognise Cargo iQ as a first league community which provides a gateway to achieving this.
“Our goal remains unchanged in our desire to be more present in global tenders with quality freight forwarders and we hope to be recognised 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.
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.
Lothar Moehle, executive director of Cargo iQ, said: “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.
“As our members progress towards 100 per cent reporting in the end-to-end shipment process, and we continue to develop and implement quality standards for global air freight, the Cargo iQ name is becoming synonymous with quality in our industry.”
Earlier this year, Cargo iQ also welcomed new members Avianca Cargo and airline IT solutions provider Hitit.
