Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services on the way to a digital warehouse
  • Smart data glove, automated guided vehicle, automation

Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services (LTLS) is driving digitalization forward by purposefully using Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. 

The aim is to improve the efficiency of operational processes and lay the foundation for reducing the workload of employees. For this purpose, the wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik AG has launched a targeted warehousing program as part of its digitalization strategy. 

Within the framework of this program, fundamental processes in all areas will be automated, digitalized and interconnected. The pilot location for the digital warehouse is Munich Airport, which is particularly suitable due to its strong growth and modern infrastructure as well as the fact that new aircraft types such as the Airbus A350 are stationed there.

"We are currently testing and starting to implement digital assistance systems, localization technologies and driverless transport systems in selected areas of activity. We cooperate with specific start-ups. For instance, we are introducing the smart data glove of Proglove as well as an automated guided vehicle of Agilox" 
says Dr. Harald Kolbe, Head of Digital Innovation at LTLS.

Core logistics processes are not only being digitalized in Munich, but also at other locations such as Frankfurt and Hamburg. The ultimate goal is to implement efficient processes at all locations. 

To keep realizing new ideas at short intervals and with great speed, LTLS relies on agile project management. But cooperations with start-ups and the implementation of a Group-wide innovation culture at all hierarchical levels are also important elements on the way to a digital warehouse.
