Sep 20, 2019: Jettainer’s special ULD Care Code of Conduct branded container, Lucky, completed its one-year journey.
Every year, the improper handling of ULDs causes avoidable additional costs of millions.
The container travelled round the world to raise awareness for the value and importance of Unit Load Devices (ULDs). It completed 86 flights passing 18 countries and six continents without damage.
On its tour, it was supposed to bring to mind the idea of handling ULDs more consciously and it managed to draw lot of attention to the ten golden rules of handling ULDs.
Previously, Jettainer had been one of the first businesses to sign the ULD Care of Conduct.
“Putting huge emphasis on the proper handling of ULDs as well as training and qualifying the staff adequately is the key influencing factor to prevent damages from happening. In this way, it is possible to save repair costs and keep the assets in service,” explains Frank Muhlenkamp, director Global Operations at Jettainer and ULD Care board member.
For some time, Jettainer has already been making a special effort to train staff to become so-called “ULD-X-Perts”.
And as a further step to ensure proper handling of ULDs, Jettainer has entered into a cooperation with Airport College International. As agreed now at ULD Care, training courses for airline employees, ground handling agents and freight forwarders on how to use ULDs correct will help to reduce damage through proper handling.
