Jettainer hits the big time with US expansion
25 / 02 / 2015
JETTAINER, a ULD management company, has started operations in the US. Jettainer Americas, based in Delaware, has a strong start with a contract for the global management and maintenance of containers and pallets on behalf of American Airlines.
The company intends to open other US branches on the near future, such as at Dallas/Fort Worth, the largest hub of American Airlines, and then Miami, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
“The American continent is one of the most important growth markets for us,” says Carsten Hernig, managing director of Jettainer. “That’s why we are investing in our on-site presence.” With the expansion of the site network, Jettainer is introducing new ground operations supervisors at each location to manage all coordination with the airline. Jettainer says the role will streamline processes and accelerate clearance on the ground.
Jettainer is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Cargo, and manages a fleet of more than 85,000 ULDs for 15 airlines around the world.
