ULD management specialist Jettainer has appointed Gert Pfeifer as general manager Europe, effective April 1.

Pfeifer joined Jettainer 15 years ago and has held a variety of leadership roles in IT and operations. Most recently, he held the position of head of operational excellence supply chain and was responsible for areas including fleet management, ULD engineering, the repair and maintenance processes and new customer integration.

He also played a key role in the development of digital twins, virtual images of real ULDs, to identify any additional potential for improvement from the very first to the final use of containers and pallets. 

Pfeifer’s new responsibilities include developing and implementing a regional sales and operations strategy for Europe to enhance and ensure the market driven and reliable ULD management service at all times.

He and his teams will handle all aspects of customer relations in the region, including sales, operations, and customer service, reinforcing Jettainer’s dedication to excellence in serving its customers. 

“Our new structure is designed to reflect the specific customer needs and market situations in the various regions. It brings us closer to our customers, which subsequently benefits our entire global customer network,” said Thomas Sonntag, Jettainer’s chief executive.

“Thanks to his many years with the company, particularly as Head of Operational Excellence Supply Chain, Dr Gert Pfeifer has in-depth knowledge of the ULD market and our customers’ requirements and has all the skills needed to drive Jettainer’s growth in Europe.” 

This position is part and parcel of Jettainer’s strategic reorganisation in order to respond optimally to regional market trends and needs.

Last month, Jettainer appointed its chief sales officer Thorsten Riekert as chief commercial officer.
