[post_content] => Lufthansa-owned Jettainer has expanded its product portfolio to include "a special service for temperature-controlled ULDs". Dubbed Cool Management, the new service includes the leasing, management and positioning as well as monitoring of units. "With this," it says, "Jettainer is facilitating this complex process, which includes the coordination of many parties, for their customers."
"The transport of temperature-sensitive goods via air freight requires precise planning and implementation. Starting with the sender via the shipper and the airline all the way to the owner of the specialised reefer-containers, everyone has to work together in a coordinated manner. Thus, the complexity and also the risk potential for the delicate freight is respectively high. The ULD management is especially important in this case," Jettainer says.
Jettainer's new service, it asserts, "increases the efficiency between all involved parties of the supply chain". Furthermore, it also "reduces the costs that can arise" through positioning, overcapacities or other inefficiencies. Additionally, in order to cater to the customers' individual needs, Jettainer also offers the Cool Management service in different models, which differ in the scope of the offered services.
"We are transferring our long-standing knowhow of worldwide ULD management to our new Cool Management service in the area of temperature-sensitive transports," says Martin Kraemer, Jettainer's head of marketing and PR. "This way, we are serving our customers' need for an easy, reliable organisation of these transports and are simultaneously closing the gap in the management of complete ULD fleets."
One company that has been quick to make full use of the service is Lufthansa Cargo. "We very much appreciate the excellence of service provided by Jettainer, as well as its constant push for innovation," says Lufthansa Cargo's global handling performance manager Marcus Bezold. "That is why we are certain to now have the best solution for temperature-sensitive goods. The new service by Jettainer will help us to reduce [the] holding time of units, which will reduce our costs for the leasing of additional ULDs."
CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE
Meanwhile, Jettainer has also up-scaled its services at Abu Dhabi International Airport with the opening of a new Centre of Excellence for the management of temperature-sensitive air freight, a move that the company believes will help it "boost the efficiency of its services between all parties" along the supply chain. "We have implemented Cool Management at the express request of our customers," says Jettainer's managing director Carsten Hernig.
"Temperature-sensitive goods, like pharmaceuticals, need highly specialised containers. The management of these expensive containers is a complex part of the ULD management. Mistakes could cause massive financial losses and reputational damages," he continues. "However, the airlines have a demand for cool management. Therefore, we have developed the Centre of Expertise in Abu Dhabi, where the specialised knowledge concerning cool ULDs is focused. Due to the increasing market for pharmaceuticals, we are optimistic about further developing the Cool Management service in future."
Describing itself as "the global market leader in outsourcing solutions for ULD management," Jettainer operates a global fleet of around 100,000 ULDs and maintains a station network encompassing some 500 airports around the globe. "Jettainer is the oldest, best established and most experienced ULD management firm in the market, with stable and unchanged ownership," it states. "Our mother company, a global cargo airline, provides a solid background in the market and enables Jettainer to be perfectly settled in a true air cargo and airline background."
