Feb 08, 2016: CHEP Aerospace Solutions, the leading global provider of outsourced ULD pooling and repair solutions, renewed its ULD management partnership with Fiji Airways, Fiji’s national airline, for a further five years.
As part of the new contract, CHEP will introduce new lightweight containers from its 80,000 strong pool of assets to support Fiji Airways in reducing their fuel costs and lowering their carbon dioxide emissions and help achieve sustainability targets.
Watson Seeto, general manager for freight, Fiji Airways, said, “Our outsourcing agreement with CHEP has returned the expected benefits of reduced costs and improved efficiencies and we are pleased to continue to entrust our ULD supply and management requirements to CHEP. As we would like to equip our fleet of modern aircraft with lightweight containers, we value the benefits of utilising a common pool of fuel-efficient composite units. CHEP’s worldwide network also provides significant overlaps with other pool customers which mean that we don’t need to invest in more ULDs than absolutely necessary for our operations and we only pay for the assets that we actually use.”
Dr. Ludwig Bertsch , president, CHEP Aerospace Solutions, said, “We have worked in partnership to develop a range of tailor-made solutions that support Fiji Airways’ growth at the lowest total cost whilst delivering significant improvements in sustainability, and look forward to our continued relationship.”
