How logistics tackles snow and ice

It's the same story every year: For some it's joyful anticipation, for others it's an uneasy feeling somewhere in the pit of the stomach. No, it's not about visiting family, but rather the question: will there be a white winter?

Climate protection becomes airborne

If you want to know what makes flight LH8406 so extraordinary, you don't have to look into the cargo hold filled by DB Schenker or into the cockpit - but into the refueling system at the airport. For the first time in the history of commercial aviation, a cargo airplane took off on 29 November that completely covered its fuel requirements with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
