CHEP scoops SIA Cargo deal

Singapore Airlines Cargo (SIA) has awarded a five-year global maintenance and repair agreement to CHEP Aerospace Solutions for its fleet of ULDs.
The deal will see CHEP will provide maintenance and repair services in Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney, Melbourne, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Brussels, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas, with additional stations likely to be included in the global repair network.
In addition to the core ULD maintenance and repair services, CHEP will provide storage, control, inventory reporting and delivery of pallet nets, corner ropes, straps and other consumables at some of the appointed stations. CHEP’s proprietary repair management software ACTIS will provide SIA with real-time insight into all elements of the repair process.
The deal comes shortly after the ULD firm announced it was being taken over by investment firm EQT infrastructure.
CHEP Aerospace Solutions President, Ludwig Bertsch, said: "Our new five-year agreement with SIA Cargo further strengthens the maintenance and repair division of our business and increases our participation in the Asia Pacific region where we have a ULD management agreement in place with another major carrier, Cathay Pacific Airways, in addition to MRO agreements with Qantas, Air New Zealand and other airlines.
"Although our parent company will change within the next few weeks, as announced to the market on 2nd November 2016, it’s business as usual for us and our customers, and we are committed to continue to deliver value to our ever-expanding customer base."
