Lufthansa Cargo has appointed former head of the One Cargo project Achim Martinka as vice president (VP) Germany.

He succeeds J. Florian Pfaff, who took over as VP Asia Pacific on 1 June 2019 and will take over his duties in the coming weeks.

Business economist Achim Martinka began his career at Lufthansa Cargo 2000 as senior manager global accounts. After various positions in Europe, he moved to Atlanta in 2010 as VP of Americas before being appointed VP Europe and Africa in Frankfurt in 2016.

Since 2017 Martinka has been responsible for the One Cargo project, a project that aims to strengthen the cooperation between SwissWorldCargo and Lufthansa Cargo.

The new position was filled in line with Lufthansa’s usual rotation policy for senior management positions.
