Virgin Atlantic Cargo has extended its partnership with ULD firm Airbase GSE for a further five years.

The five-deal commenced this month and includes ULD management systems, procurement planning and digitalisation.

The partnership extension will see Airbase GSE support the airline’s move toward its 2050 sustainability target, by recycling all Virgin Atlantic cargo nets, saving 200 tonnes in landfill waste.

Additionally, all units purchased on behalf of the airline will be aluminium, which is a recyclable material.

Lee Connolly, manager, ULD Control at Virgin Atlantic Cargo, said: “This deal not only enhances our already strong relationship with Airbase, it moves us a step closer to our 2050 sustainability target by saving landfill waste and committing to metal units exclusively.

“I look forward to the next five years, having no doubt that Airbase will keep up their high levels of service and continue to deliver.”
