Jettainer ULDs to service Brussels Airlines’ cargo
Feb 9, 2017: Jettainer, the leading international service partner for outsourced ULD management, has taken over the management and maintenance of the containers for Brussels Airlines. A specially designed ULD was handed over to the airline to manifest the start of operations and it will travel as an ambassador for the two companies in future. The change of ULD management provider came into force on February 5.
Brussels now has a brand-new fleet consisting of about 1,000 ULDs, many of them AKEs. These are all modern lightweight units. The reduction in weight with the same robustness will help reducing fuel consumption thus be beneficial to the environment. Jettainer is continuing to expand its network in a whole range of African regions thanks to its new customer; they are traditionally served from Brussels.
“We’re looking forward to servicing Brussels Airlines. As a result, our network of stations will increase significantly in the African region. We’re very proud to offer our latest customer a range of innovations. In addition to the units themselves, we’re also enhancing our company’s own IT systems. The new JettApp reflects our continual development and our strong innovative capability,” says Martin Kraemer, Head of Marketing & PR at Jettainer.
Jettainer’s own IT solution, JettWare, premiers on smartphones, in addition to the extremely robust, rugged tablets, the JettPads. This meets the company’s requirement for even greater flexibility and simple adaptability by employees at local stations.
