Singapore signs Zodiac for airfreight container deal

Zodiac Aerospace is to supply more than 2,000 of its Herculight S AKE cargo containers to Singapore Airlines Cargo. The containers, constructed with a combination of composite and aluminium panels, come in two configurations to suit passenger or cargo operations.
One of the airline’s key requirements was toughness and durability, said Zodiac.
Sales vice president, Bart van Berkel, said: “We strive towards the lightest tare weight possible for our products, leading the market trend towards lightest weight with highest durability. At the same time, we strictly will not compromise the performance potential of our products. We look forward to a successful collaboration with Singapore Airlines Cargo for many years to come”.
Tare weight of the Herculight S range, launched in 2014 starts from 51kg with Endumax composite panels, and 65kg with full aluminium panels.
