Lufthansa Cargo is the cargo airline subsidiary of Lufthansa with its own ICAO code, and callsign, unlike most other "cargo divisions" of airline holding companies and their operations across the world. Lufthansa Cargo based in Frankfurt, Germany, and though considered a completely separate airline, still carries the (LH) IATA code of Lufthansa.

Lufthansa Cargo AG became an autonomous company within the Lufthansa Group on 30 November 1994, reflecting the growing importance of airfreight as a business area in its own right.

With a transport volume of 1.70 million tonnes of freight and mail, 8.28 billion revenue tonne-kilometres and revenues of around 2.91 billion euros in 2008, Lufthansa Cargo ranks among the world’s biggest cargo carriers. The company currently employs around 4,600 staff worldwide. Lufthansa Cargo’s core competency is the airport-to-airport business.

Lufthansa Cargo operates a fleet of 19 of its own MD-11F aircraft. The company also markets the belly capacities of all passenger aircraft operated by Deutsche Lufthansa AG and most of the capacities of its german-sino subsidiary Jade Cargo International.

The route network encompasses over 300 destinations, which are served by cargo and passenger aircraft as well as by trucking services. The bulk of the airfreight is trans-shipped at the Lufthansa Cargo Center at Frankfurt Airport, the company’s main hub. Its other hubs are Leipzig and Munich.
