Champ in the corner for ULD Partner
14 / 03 / 2017
Champ Cargosystems says that Hong Kong based ULD Partner is using its ULD Manager application to support the operations of its launch customer, Air China Cargo. Under the contract, ULD Partner will supply, repair, maintenance and manage the combined Air China Cargo and Air China inventory of over 13,000 ULDs, across a network of over 80 airports.
ULD Manager gives full visibility of all equipment movements, airport inventories and equipment stock levels, alerting support teams of situations such as excess or low station stock or incompatible movements and generally assisting in the overall control of their managed assets.
ULD Manager is an advanced web-based application used directly by several airlines to manage and control their equipment. It gives carriers instant information on ULD locations and status, and ensures that equipment is in the right place, at the right time, and in the right condition. It also helps avoid loss and damage to high value equipment, while ensuring the timely return of interline ULDs.
Champ vice president of sales and marketing Nicholas Xenocostas, said: “CHAMP’s partnership with ULD Partner is unique in the ten-year history of ULD Manager. All of our ULD Manager customers to date have been airlines.”
Working with ULD Partner, which retains the relationship with the carrier, “is quite a departure from the norm. We are, of course, delighted to become a part of the ULD outsource business through ULD Partner, and very much look forward to supporting them as they expand their service to other markets.”
ULD Partner general manager, Angel Cheung, added: “Champ’s ULD Manager was identified as one of our preferred IT solutions for our ULD Fleet Management Service. We needed a system that could provide full control and visibility of all ULDs operating within and beyond our client airline’s networks, whilst meeting industry best practice standards. Furthermore the system had to be functionally rich, easy to use, and, moreover, fully scalable to meet the operational needs of our customer airlines, irrespective of their size. Throughout our implementation, we have maintained close contact with Champ to ensure that ULD Manager could be ready to support the start of our services.”
