Jettainer, the leading international service partner for outsourced ULD management, welcomes American Airlines Cargo as a customer for its “Cool Management” service. The airline now has access to the 24/7 service of Jettainer’s own Cool Center of Excellence in Abu Dhabi, which is specifically responsible for managing temperature-controlled ULDs.
After a successful test run, Jettainer’s Cool Center of Excellence in Abu Dhabi has been managing the entire fleet of American Airlines Cargo reefer containers. The “Cool Management” service includes the leasing, managing and positioning as well as process-related monitoring. Especially the transport of temperature-sensitive air freight requires complex interaction between shipper, forwarder and airline, and to some extent the owner of the containers. This process entails risks that Jettainer minimizes. In addition, the service reduces costs that can arise, for example, due to positioning or overcapacity.
“The management of reefer containers is a very complex part of ULD management. With our expertise in global ULD management, we can help increase efficiency between all supply chain participants in this process as well. We are optimistic that we will be able to further expand this service,” says Carsten Hernig, Managing Director of Jettainer GmbH.
Tom Grubb, Global Head of Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare, states: “For many years, Jettainer has been a valuable partner in the management of our regular ULDs. Now, with the addition of active temperature-controlled containers, we have comprehensive, end-to-end tracking and management of all ULD types used for our customers’ valuable cargo.”
“Cool Management is the newest of our services and complements our product range by an attractive field which is increasingly demanded within the market. With our flexibly combinable product modules, we also meet the demands of many customers for individual solutions,” adds Martin Kraemer, Head of Marketing & PR at Jettainer.
