Etihad Cargo extends ULD management deal with Jettainer

Published: Monday, June 14, 2021

Etihad Cargo has extended its deal with ULD management firm Jettainer to include the management of the carrier’s cool containers.

Jettainer has managed and maintained Etihad Cargo’s ULD fleet since 2011, but the airline has now added management of its temperature controlled containers through the container management firm’s cool&fly service.

This includes cool ULD order management, steering and positioning, monitoring and after-service management.

Andre Blech, director of operations and delivery at Etihad Cargo, said: “The expansion of the partnership delivers additional efficiency gains and cool&fly provides greater efficiency for the transportation of temperature-sensitive cargo which is especially paramount during the pandemic and in the long term.

“This plays a key role in the expansion plan of the PharmaLife and FreshForward product offering, ensuring customer satisfaction every step of the way.”
