CHEP and Cargolux extend their collaboration up to 2020

Luxembourg-headquartered Boeing 747 freight operator Cargolux and CHEP Aerospace Solutions , a provider of outsourced ULD pooling and repair services, have signed a new agreement to extend their existing collaborative deal out to 2020.
Cargolux has been a CHEP client since 2009; in fact, it is one of CHEP’s biggest customers. The carrier is already working with a fleet of over 12,000 ULDs, and that figure is expected to rise to 17,000 containers over the course of the next few years.
Franco Nanna, director, global logistics services at Cargolux, declared: “In the past seven years, our airline has grown significantly, and during our partnership, CHEP has always proven its ability to flexibly adjust our ULD monthly stock in line with our cargo demand.
“The availability of the right unit at the right time and in the right place is critical to our business and we’ve found a strategic partner who can provide us with service excellence and peace of mind for ULD availability,” he added.
Ludwig Bertsch, CHEP president, said that he was particularly “looking forward to supplying ULDs for the entire Cargolux Group’s flights.
“Cargolux is a valued partner who has also played an important part in supporting many of our innovation initiatives including the trial of lightweight pallets and CanTrack, our container tracking device,” he noted.
