     CNS Partnership was off to the races in Palm Springs this week, with a warm reception for partners and friends, as United & Lufthansa celebrated their just announced air cargo alliance partnership in style.
     “We are not an overnight sensation but have worked on developing our partnership during the past five years,” said Jim Bellinder, Vice President, United Cargo Sales-Americas.
     “We have just completed moving our first couple of dozen shipments and cannot wait for tomorrow, because we look better everyday.
     “We thank everyone for their business and faith in us,” ‘Bodacious’ Jim Bellinder exclaimed.
     “We are very excited to move our cargo business to a new level,” said Bernhard Kindelbacher, Head of Area Management The Americas, Lufthansa Cargo.
     “We had a very good year in 2017 and are moving ahead with even better business in 2018.
     “Our air cargo joint venture will bring a new level of cooperation and service excellence to the industry.”

     The event also brought Dorothea von Boxberg center stage. Dorothea takes over August 1 as Chief Commercial Officer, Lufthansa Cargo, making her the highest-ranking female air cargo executive in the world. Dorothea revealed that she is both excited and determined to “take the paper out of air cargo.”
     Mother of three boys, approachable and very down to earth, Dorothea said that she is not the least bit put off by the imbalance of men versus women in the top ranks of air cargo today.
     Later Jan Krems, President Cargo United Airlines shared the excitement of both the beginnings of what is termed “a true joint alliance” and “The Age of Dorothea” noting:
“She is going to make all of us look good.”
