The LHCf forward (LHCf) experiment measures the production cross sections of neutral particles emitted to the very forward region of an LHC interaction point in order to test the hadronic interaction models used in air-shower simulations. In this proceedings, we present the neutron and p0 spectra measured in pp collisions at vs = 13 TeV. In addition to them, many results will be delivered from currently on-going analyses of data obtained at LHCf-ATLAS common operation, and at the RHICf experiment with pp collisions at vs = 510 GeV, as well as from future LHCf operations with pp and pO collisions at LHC.
