Lufthansa Cargo will take on the role of anchor partner with global digital supply chain technology accelerator Plug and Play.

Based in Sunnyvale, USA, the company claims to be the world’s largest technology accelerator that brings technology start-ups and companies together.

Established companies work with start-ups to develop digital supply chain and digital logistics platforms, with the intention of developing and implementing new digital solutions.

The programme provides an opportunity for players in the logistics industry to network with and learn from each other, exchange ideas and drive digitisation.

“By working with start-ups, we get to try out innovative ideas and new technology. These innovations might be the basis for new services for our customers or process optimisations. They are a major factor in the digitisation of logistics,” said Boris Hueske, Head of Digital Transformation at Lufthansa Cargo.

Mike Zayonc, Founder of Plug and Play Supply Chain & Logistics, said: “We are very excited to have Lufthansa Cargo on board as one of our supply chain anchor partners as they are a perfect fit for our ecosystem of industry leading corporate partners

“Having partners like Lufthansa Cargo, ExxonMobil, Panasonic, DHL, Prologis, the United States Postal Service, Ericsson, Maersk, and BASF working together to collaborate with the most advanced technologies is a perfect venue to digitally transform any global fortune 500 company's end-to-end supply chain.”
