cool&fly, a unique management service offered by Jettainer for temperature-controlled ULDs is expected to maximise the efficient use of cool containers and serve the increasing demand for cool transport solutions.
“The product is one of a kind, comprising full cool ULD order management, steering and positioning along with monitoring as well as after-service management. It is available to airlines, no matter their other ULD management setup,” the company said.
According to Jettainer, continuous monitoring allows for immediate and proactive intervention in the event of irregularities and the provision of 24x7x365 support. This helps to significantly minimise the risks caused by the complex interaction between all supply chain stakeholders. cool&fly delivers demonstrable improvements when positioning and repositioning cool containers, thus maximising the availability of cool ULDs.
Thomas Sonntag, Managing Director of Jettainer GmbH said, “The logistical challenges involved when transporting vaccines by air are huge. Maximising the efficient use of the cool ULDs will be the key – reliable management of all interfaces from a single point will minimise risks during the transport. cool&fly and our highly experienced cool competence center provide customers with the perfect solution.”
Jettainer said that its dedicated temperature control competence centre in the Middle East will offer customers a single point of contact to ensure the smooth operation of the entire cool ULD journey, which has been further resourced to meet the expected demand. “The expert team selects the best rental trip based on Jettainer’s global positioning network and ensures timely delivery through effective positioning and return of cool ULDs.”
Jettainer’s cool competence centre in the Middle East has bundled its wide-ranging experience in temperature-controlled ULD management for several years now, managing cool containers for companies including Lufthansa Cargo and American Airlines.
The company said, last year alone, its highly specialised team has managed almost 12,000 cool ULD orders, providing its customers with more secure supply, increased availability as well as substantial financial benefits due to optimised lease trips, as delays incur high demurrage costs. “The team has now been further resourced and strengthened to meet the expected demands of customers and the market.”
