Jettainer tests next generation of digital container
April 27, 2018: Temperature controlled containers provider Jettainer starts testing its enhanced digital container.
Together with IT experts from Lufthansa Industry Solutions, the company has revised the original device and equipped it with new functions.
The focus is now on registering and recording shocks and damage as well as temperature changes.
Initially, 100 units will be equipped with the new device for test operation in order to intensively verify functionality and data quality.
“The main objective is for the incoming sensory information to provide reliable information about whether and what kind of damage is present. This allows the following maintenance and repair processes to be better planned and accelerated, which will help to optimize the overall efficiency,” informs the German company through a statement.
"The technical possibilities of the digital container enable us to reduce the time and financial expenditure for repair measures. With our 90,000 units in use worldwide, this has enormous potential," says Carsten Hernig, managing director of Jettainer GmbH.
He adds: "At the same time, the new containers also increase our ability to identify the originators of the damage. And that helps us to motivate people to implement a more responsible handling of the ULDs."
Jettainer is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Cargo AG.
