ACL Airshop’s strategic initiatives at WCS
11 / 10 / 2021
ACL Airshop has announced strategic initiatives and sustainability themes at the World Cargo Symposium (WCS) in Dublin.
The air cargo Unit Load Device (ULD) logistics solutions provider said that its ongoing strategic initiatives are centered on their customers’ stated needs. From multiple “voice of the customer” surveys a spokesperson said that the company has learned that its customers:
Highly value the worldwide availability of its large and growing fleet of ULDs. Flexible lease terms can be as short as seven days, or meaningful savings are available with long term leases and full-fleet ULD Management programs.
Appreciate its large worldwide network of service points at major hub airports. This allows one-way leases and drop-offs at destinations when desired. Customers can pick up and return worldwide. ACL Airshop locations on six continents carry all types of ULDs and cargo restraints such as nets, straps, fittings and corner ropes.
Recognize the value of speed and efficiency. ACL Airshop is well-known for its speed of responsiveness to clients on a 24/7/365 basis. “Custom ULD Solutions” speaks to the array of flexible programs that ACL Airshop offers, not rigid programs such as ULD fleet pooling.
Know that the digitalization wave is changing things quickly. The nature of logistics management in air cargo is now enhanced with innovative technologies, which is why ACL Airshop created “FindMyULD” and other effective new tools. “ULD Control,” Bluetooth tracking, and proprietary Repair Station software are examples of continuous investments so customers can manage their ULD fleet around the world from the palm of their hand.
See ACL Airshop as a one-stop shop. It operates in five highly complementary business segments: Cargo Control Products Manufacturing, ULD Leasing, ULD Sales, ULD Repairs, and ULD Logistics Management.
Added a company spokesperson: “Sustainability has become an important strategic imperative in the air transport industry. ACL Airshop is committed to doing its part for a greener, better world. For example, the company provides lightweight aluminum pallets for lease, which are engineered to be thin but strong, reducing overall weight and thus saving fuel burn and costs in the long-term.
“In its own internal investments, the company recently built an ultra-modern new production facility in South Carolina, using numerous Lean techniques to enhance productivity, increase materials velocity, and reduce utilities waste.
