Jettainer has been chosen by CMA CGM Air Cargo to deliver unit load device (ULD) management and maintenance services to boost supply chain transparency and efficiency.

The ULD management company will provide global positioning, management, maintenance, and repair services for CMA CGM Air Cargo’s fleet of a few thousands ULDs, primarily pallets, under a five-year contract.

CMA CGM Air Cargo is expected to benefit from Jettainer’s location data, so that the ULDs find their way from their forwarders back to the cargo airline and are always available in sufficient quantities, even for charter flights at short notice.

Real time monitoring also enables Jettainer to optimise repair handling. This, and access to Jettainer’s global repair network, can ensure operational stability, reduce lead times, and avoid unnecessary positioning, said Jettainer.

Thomas Sonntag, managing director of Jettainer, remarked: “With our global team and integrated and intelligent IT solutions, we are able to offer the most efficient ULD management service, guaranteeing the availability of ULDs, reducing costs and additionally contributing to more transparency in the value chain.

“We are pleased to be able to support CMA CGM Air Cargo’s ambitious growth plans with our ULD service.”

CMA CGM Air Cargo plans to operate a fleet of at least 12 freighters by 2026.
