Frankfurt am Main, Germany—Nov. 10, 2011—In a move that will further strengthen its market position CHAMP Cargosystems, a provider of integrated air cargo solutions, has acquired TRAXON Europe, a provider of electronic communications solutions to the air cargo industry.

The deal, agreed between CHAMP, Lufthansa Cargo and Air France, the majority shareholders of TRAXON Europe, will deliver synergy between the two companies, providing a strong, integrated portfolio of solutions that will accelerate initiatives such as e-freight, Cargo 2000 and global customs compliance.
