E2open (NASDAQ: EOPN) said that Lufthansa Technik is leveraging the E2open Business Network. The cloud-based platform gives Lufthansa Technik the distinct competitive advantage of better ensuring continuity of supply and reducing delayed deliveries by getting immediate notification of problems and exceptions.

With E2open, we can now determine the first available opening on a cargo plane and get the commit back from the carrier on the order and booking process with Lufthansa Cargo in seconds, as opposed to the manual booking process used before.”
