In the role, Trapp will continue to develop the unit load device (ULD) management firm’s software landscape JettWare, the basis for the intelligent management of pallets and containers.
He will particularly focus on tracking and tracing for airfreight ULDs and introducing technical innovations in the field of mobile IT solutions.

He will also press ahead with the ongoing development work on the mobile arm of JettWare, the JettApp application, which is being used at airports.
Jettainer managing director, Carsten Hernig, says: “We’ve found a competent manager in Arnd Trapp, who brings many years of experience in process and information management and an extensive knowledge of the aviation sector.
