Jettainer has set up a new company, Jettainer Americas Inc., in Delaware. Just last month, Jettainer took over the global management and maintenance of containers and pallets on behalf of American Airlines.
New branches will be opened in central locations in the US as part of the expansion. This will include a presence at Dallas/Fort Worth, the largest hub of new customer American Airlines. Jettainer has already been managing US Airways’ ULDs since 2005. The new offices will also be in Miami, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
“The American continent is one of the most important growth markets for us. That’s why we are investing in our on-site presence. We are aiming to expand our market leadership with highly innovative services,” says Carsten Hernig, managing director of Jettainer GmbH.
With the expansion of the site network, Jettainer will also introduce its “Ground Operation Supervisor Concept” in America. For customers, this means that a central interface – a supervisor – will be created at each location to manage all coordination with the airline’s ground services. According to the Jettainer, this will further streamline processes and accelerate clearance on the ground.
