Since 2019, heyworld GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Cargo based in Frankfurt am Main and employs 45 people. In cooperation with Lufthansa Cargo, heyworld has created an eCommerce hub at Frankfurt Airport and started the operations of an own parcel sorter in October 2022. The focus of the service is on transport solutions in Lufthansa Cargo's medium- and long-haul network for online retailers, digital marketplaces and freight forwarders. The transport offer for online retailers is based on a modular product and in particular on fast and reliable connections with short transit times for transport as well as customs clearance. The portfolio includes end-to-end shipment tracking and a parcel-based pricing. heyworld thus simplifies and digitalizes cross-border eCommerce logistics by orchestrating all providers along the supply chain and offering a high-quality one-stop-shop solution. As a digital forwarder, heyworld offers a service that is faster than mail and more price efficient that express services.

Ashwin Bhat, Chief Commercial Officer at Lufthansa Cargo, said: "I am very pleased to have Boris Hueske and Nikola Todic as two experienced and very agile managers for the young company heyworld. They both bring extensive experience and knowledge from the areas of digitalization and eCommerce in the airfreight segment. Against the background of the continuing high demand on the market for customized eCommerce and same-day offers, our goal is to align our increased freight capacities in the medium- and long-haul network even more closely with the services of heyworld and to make them even more attractive for our customers. In this regard, my thanks go to Timo Schamber, who has laid an important foundation for the establishment and expansion of heyworld in the course of our very good cooperation over the past years."
