Howdy cupcake: This Jettainer ULD will travel the world to celebrate 60 years of airfreight containers
Outsourced ULD management company Jettainer is sending a brightly illustrated container around the world for the 60th anniversary of the airfreight container.
Standardized pallets and containers were introduced in 1959 to optimize the loading and unloading of freight.
Jettainer’s stripling ULD’s journey starts on March 7 in Frankfurt and will first take it to Singapore, where the IATA World Cargo Symposium is taking place next week.
There, the Jettainer celebrations will continue with a second anniversary: the 15th anniversary of Jettainer, which now has more than 20 customers currently relying on its services.
“We have won many customers in the last 15 years and have not yet lost a single one. For us, this lasting loyalty is the perfect proof of our service,” says Martin Kraemer, head of marketing and PR at Jettainer.
Innovations in the ULD steering software as well as in the container hardware have led to significant increases in efficiency and contribute to more fuel-efficiency and eco-friendliness.
Jettainer’s IT infrastructure, JettWare, already incorporates an artificial intelligence to support ULD controllers in their work. Technologies for geo-localization of ULDs are successfully in use. Further developments continue to provide improvements.
The ULD Black Box, for example, is currently being tested as a device that can measure and register damages. This will lead to a further increase in the efficiency of ULD fleets.
