Guangzhou / Frankfurt, October 9, 2018
Jettainer and CORE Transport Technologies have entered into a strategic partnership. The COREInsight tracking solution, which is based on Bluetooth technology, will in future be used in the containers and pallets of the internationally leading service partners for outsourced ULD management. The seminal tracking system will streamline Jettainer’s ground processes at customer airlines and, for instance, enable fully automated inventories.
The Bluetooth tags, which can be retrofitted without additional certification of the ULDs, are automatically recorded and evaluated by strategically installed readers at the airports. Scanning by hand or other interventions are no longer necessary. “The integration of the CORE tracking solution allows us to further increase efficiency through improvements in inventory management on the ground for airline customers,” says Carsten Hernig, Managing Director at Jettainer. He adds: “The fact that the geolocation of our ULD fleet is further improved at the same time is a nice side effect. The decisive factor for us, however, was the possibilities for process improvements on the ground”.
“Our Bluetooth solution was initially designed as a simple tracking solution for ULD inventories. But when we implemented the system at the major airlines in 2017, it quickly became clear that the large amount of data and the ability to analyze ULD movements would bring many benefits to airlines and their customers,” states Ian Craig, CEO of CORE, and adds: “I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with Jettainer. With the expertise and experience of the leader in ULD
management, we will be able to continue to improve our products”.
