Jettainer, global provider of unit load device (ULD) management, launches plug&fly, a new basic version of its full-service ULD solution.
Jettainer notes that with plug&fly small and mid-sized airlines will now be able to unlock the benefits of outsourced ULD management in a readily accessible way.
The company says plug&fly helps airlines optimise their ULD fleet by as much as 15 per cent while making sure that the ULDs are available anywhere, at any time at transparent fixed prices.
“Big carriers are not the only ones who get to enjoy optimised ULD fleets and the smart global management services provided by Jettainer’s industry experts,” says Thomas Sonntag, Jettainer’s managing director. “Many other airlines with fleets of up to 2,000 ULDs can now reap the rewards too. To arrive at this destination, we had to take a separate, more streamlined approach that we are now rolling out with plug&fly.”
Jettainer developed a basic product with a fixed pricing model that is guided by the number of ULDs. These assets remain the customer’s property. By optimising the ULD fleet quantity, Jettainer generates direct and immediate cost savings for the customer. These savings come in addition to reduced costs for airlines´ own IT and coordination efforts, which are typically incurred with in-house solutions.
Jettainer also uses an integrated IT solution harnessing artificial intelligence, ensuring real-time visibility of ULDs and inventories. Jettainer highlights that its customers also benefit from its global network and inherent synergies in ULD positioning. This allows airlines to increase their focus on core business while enjoying the flexibility and full cost transparency.
“Plug&fly takes the hassle out of ULD management for the customer. By focusing on the core service, it offers customers a quick, easy and transparent way to realise cost advantages,” Sonntag adds.
Jettainer offers a variety of services to airlines, from ULD management to maintenance and repair, from deploying controllers directly at the customer’s premises to many other additional services.
