The company will also be introducing a new intuitive reporting feature to its ULD management IT application “Jettware” and continue to work on a host of refinements and new technology applications. Wong Joon San reports.

According to Peter Ahnert, Jettainer’s director business development, corporate headquarters, the company’s initiatives are aimed at reducing the total cost of ULD ownership/ usage through improved efficiency, increased asset utilisation and lower operating costs.

Regarding Jettainer’s business approach on how it guarantees customers’ cost savings each year, Ahnert said: “We do this by increased asset utilisation through a focus on managing ULDs and by cross utilisation of ULDs across several carriers, leveraging investments into technology over a larger group of users and ULDs, and continuous innovation.”

Asked about the percentage cost reductions customers are seeing through the projects that it has carried out so far,Ahnert said it differed from carrier to carrier, but the general aim was to cutcosts by between 10 to 20 per cent oftotal cost, including all aspects rangingfrom asset ownership and repair to ITand human resources.
