Notification - change in Lufthansa Cargo process

Data requirements for import shipments to China change

As per the official decree 144 of the GACC (General Administration of Customs of the P.R. China)...

All shipments to China no longer require the following data elements:

- Shipper enterprise code

- Consignee enterprise code

- Consignee specific contact name

- Consignee specific contact number

All shipments to mainland China still require the following mandatory data elements:

- Shipper and Consignee telephone number

- Specific and non-generic goods description

All data is required both on MAWB level, as well as HAWB level (for consolidation)


No mandatory to do!

Please be advised that it is no longer mandatory to provide LCAG with the enterprise codes of SHP and CNE, specific contact person and specific contact number, neither in messge nor in paper form. We will not mandate that data on acceptance.

If you do not wish to change your process, it is fine to continue sending the messages as you are doing. It is not a problem if the data (which is no longer mandatory) is still transmitted.
