Etihad keeps up ULD outsourcing

ETIHAD Crystal Cargo, has renewed its global contract for the management of Unit Load Devices (ULD), with Unitpool for a further three years.

Unitpool’s chief executive officer, David Harman, said: “Renewing our relationship with Etihad is a very important step, not only for Unitpool the company, but for confirming that outsourcing ULD management, which is seen by many as a mission critical function, is a real option for carriers of all sizes.

“Etihad continues to expand year-on-year and Unitpool continues to provide solutions for its baggage and cargo requirements and in doing so has grown as an organisation.”

Des Vertannes, executive vice-president cargo at Etihad Airways, said: “Managing the growth in our business, presents a challenge across our network, especially in terms of people, facilities and equipment. Unitpool has risen to the challenge helping us to maintain customer satisfaction so we are pleased to renew our contract with Unitpool and build on this success further.”
