Jettainer celebrates 15th anniversary
March 7, 2019: ULD management firm Jettainer is sending a visual container around the world for the 60th anniversary of the air freight container.
The journey starts on March 7 in Frankfurt and will first take it to Singapore, where the IATA World Cargo Symposium is taking place next week. There, the Jettainer celebrations will continue with a second anniversary: the 15th anniversary of Jettainer.
In the 15 years that Jettainer has pushed forward the development and steering logic of ULDs, the company has become the market leader in outsourced ULD management. More than 20 customers currently rely on Jettainer.
"We have won many customers in the last 15 years and have not yet lost a single one. For us, this lasting loyalty is the perfect proof of our service," says Martin Kraemer, head of Marketing & PR at Jettainer.
Innovations in the ULD steering software as well as in the container hardware have led to significant increases in efficiency and contribute to more fuel-efficiency and eco-friendliness. Jettainer's IT infrastructure, JettWare, already incorporates an artificial intelligence to support ULD controllers in their work. Technologies for geo-localization of ULDs are successfully in use. Further developments continue to provide improvements. The ULD Black Box, for example, is currently being tested as a device that can measure and register damages. This will lead to a further increase in the efficiency of ULD fleets.
"The development, especially in the area of damage prevention, offers a great opportunity for further improvements. The 15th anniversary of Jettainer and the 60th anniversary of the ULD clearly show that ULD management is an innovative industry and that the potential is far from exhausted," adds Martin Kraemer.
Standardised pallets and containers were introduced in 1959 to optimise the loading and unloading of freight.
