Russian freighter operator AirBridgeCargo (ABC) has inked a leasing agreement with Jettainer which will see the ULD management company provide airfreight containers on “short term requirement” to carry special cargo.
Sergey Lazarev, general director of ABC, said: “Being determined to move forward with strengthening our specialist services for the transportation of live animals and automotive equipment of different scales and complexities, we are delighted to partner with Jettainer.
“By having a reliable and experienced partner with extensive geographical coverage, we will be able to guarantee fast and seamless deliveries for our customers worldwide.”
ABC said that it will have access to an “extensive fleet” of ULDs, including horse stalls, car racks, and other pallets or containers to support its dedicated services.
The Boeing 747 freighter operator said that it has seen a rise in demand for “safe and intact delivery” of cargoes requiring compliance with special conditions and environment.
Jettainer managing director Carsten Hernig said: “Our leasing model meets the growing customer demand for short-term access to standard ULDs as well as special containers wherever they are needed.
“We are very pleased to be able to use our know-how and global network for one of the fastest growing cargo airlines and to support AirBridgeCargo in providing the right ULDs for all transports at all time.”
