Cargolux and CHEP Aerospace Solutions extend their partnership until 2017
Cargolux, Europe's largest all-cargo airline, which operates a
fleet of modern Boeing 747-400 and 747-8F freighters, and CHEP Aerospace Solutions, the world's leading independent provider
of outsourced Unit Load Device (ULD) management, have extended
their ULD outsourcing and management services agreement until
Cargolux and CHEP Aerospace Solutions, which previously operated
as Unitpool, started their partnership in 2009 following a detailed
cost and benefit analysis and due diligence process. This extension
of their cooperation demonstrates that both parties have been
pleased with their arrangement and are committed to further
improving their relationship.
Cargolux's Henrik Ambak, VP Ground Services & Commercial IT,
said: "Three years ago, when we made the strategic decision to
outsource the management of our entire fleet of over 11,000 ULDs,
we expected that pooling our ULDs would deliver
tangible service and financial benefits. As a matter of fact, our
expectations in terms of operational quality, service level and
financial benefits have been exceeded. CHEP Aerospace Solutions' 24
hours a day, 365 days a year operations and extensive global maintenance and service network provide us with peace of mind
that we will always have the necessary ULDs at our disposal when
and where we need them, allowing us to focus on our core business
of flying cargo - Actually we have never missed a ULD at a location
where we expected it to be available."
CHEP Aerospace Solutions President, Dr Ludwig Bertsch said:
"Cargolux has been our highly valued customer since 2009 and we are
extremely proud that we will continue providing our ULD management
solution to Europe's largest all-cargo airline until at least 2017.
We have been able to prove the value of our services to Cargolux
and an increasing number of airlines also recognise the benefits of
eliminating their ULD purchase, repair, maintenance and
repositioning costs whilst reducing their operating expenditure and
increasing operational flexibility. We look forward to our
continued successful cooperation with Cargolux."
