ACE: Lufthansa Cargo and Jettainer renew ULD contract


Jettainer will continue to handle the management and maintenance of the unit load devices (ULDs) for Lufthansa Cargo in the future after it extended the contract it has until 31 December 2021.

The fresh contract was signed at air cargo europe in Munich today.

Jettainer says the introduction of new lightweight containers to the Lufthansa Cargo fleet will continue giving the carrier access to one of the most eco-friendly lower-deck ULD fleets in the world, which will also play a role in reducing CO2 emissions in global aviation.

“Jettainer’s innovative capabilities, as illustrated by the ongoing development of ULDs, but also in its award-winning decision support system, give us a crucial competitive advantage from many points of view.

“This makes Jettainer into a strategically important service partner for us,” says Lufthansa Cargo vice president of global handling management, Dr. Jan-Wilhelm Breithaupt.

“We’re working hard to make things smarter – in all respects: whether this involves smarter accounting systems, smart management for our ULD fleet or even smarter containers – and we’re delighted to be able to offer our best services to Lufthansa Cargo in particular,” says Jettainer managing director, Carsten Hernig.

Jettainer is a subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group.
