Lufthansa Cargo became the first airline to support the electronic Dangerous Goods Declaration (eDGD) standard on 17 September, with a shipment on a flight from Frankfurt Airport to Mexico City.

The German freight carrier used the Infr8 eDGD shipping portal from DAKOSY, which was launched in a pilot programme. By connecting digitally to the Infr8 platform, users can process the legally mandated eDGD and other transport documents.

INFr8 “integrates the shipper into the electronic information chain of the air cargo process for the first time”, said Anke Giesen, executive director operations at Fraport.
