50,000,000 shipments cleared by CB Customs Broker


  • Lufthansa Cargo subsidiary drives forward eCommerce business in Germany

In mid-February, the Lufthansa Cargo subsidiary CB Customs Broker exceeded the 50 million mark of customs cleared shipments in just three years. The full-service customs expert is thus making a significant contribution to the expansion of the eCommerce business within Germany and enabling a large number of companies to participate in this industry growth.

“Just three years ago, we developed our new customs clearance software, which can clear large volumes of shipments in a highly automated process. Exceeding 50 million cleared shipments shows once again that our holistic end-to-end approach with complete solutions for our customers is the right one and that the growing eCommerce business in particular holds further potential for us. The fact that we have already reached this milestone in such a short time is mainly attributable to our customers, who work with us in a trusting relationship, as well as to our employees, whose commitment has made this success possible. We would also like to thank our partners in software development, without whose tireless efforts we would not have been able to achieve this,” explains Uwe Glunz, Managing Director at CB Customs Broker.

CB Customs Broker GmbH specializes in all aspects of customs and customs clearance for import and export shipments by air, sea, rail or road. It offers its customers automated complete solutions, the handling of all common customs procedures as well as individual, customized solutions. As a whollyowned
subsidiary of Lufthansa Cargo, CB Customs Broker also has access to a strong global network and extensive expertise.
