Flying High: CHEP Aerospace Solutions renews ULD management partnership with Air Transat

December 02, 2015

CHEP Aerospace Solutions, the leading global provider of outsourced ULD (Unit Load Devices) pooling and repair solutions, and Air Transat, Canada’s leading holiday travel airline, have extended their partnership for a further five years.

Since 2003, CHEP has managed the entire pool of ULDs for Air Transat’s growing fleet, including the supply of lightweight ULDs to maximise operational efficiency and sustainability. The continued collaboration will ensure that Air Transat can continue to build their growing network whilst benefitting from CHEP’s expertise and flexible service at the overall lowest cost.

CHEP Aerospace Solutions President, Dr. Ludwig Bertsch, believes that CHEP’s commitment to customer service and continuous improvement is the key to the ongoing success: “Our global pooling network has significantly increased over the past years which has enabled us to offer more synergies and better solutions to our airline customers. We value the partnership we have built and are pleased to continue our participation in Air Transat’s growth and success.”
