Arrow Cargo Lou Cordoba ULD management ULD supply Unitpool


Arrow Cargo, a Miami-based freighter operator focusing on Central and South America with a fleet of DC-10, MD- 11 and B757 freighters, has said it has appointed Unitpool to secure its ULD supply and management requirements. Arrow said the deal will allow it the flexibility and reliability that it needs to secure the commitments of its scheduled and charter operations, and to focus on its growth plans outside of South America.

The agreement, which includes the acquisition of the Arrow’s ULDs, full management services, repairs, procurement and integration within Unitpool’s R7 fleet, will commence 1 September 2009.

“ULD management for cargo operations is high in complexity, and we are certain that our experience working with AirBridgeCargo, Etihad’s freighter operation and returning customer Cargoitalia, will allow us to provide Arrow’s growing operation with the support and dedication that it needs,” said Unitpool’s commercial director, Lou Cordoba. “It is also a welcomed opportunity for Unitpool to strengthen its network in Latin America.”
