Jettainer, a leading international service partner for outsourced ULD management, is expanding its leasing services. Comfortable transport boxes for horses can now be made available at short notice. The special ULDs can be leased for one day or up to several months, and a wide variety of ULDs can also be leased from Jettainer at times of peak demand via a 24-hour hotline.
The stables are now available for transporting the elegant four-legged creatures above the clouds from thein Frankfurt – and, if required, from any other destination around the globe. The special design of the horseboxes, which can transport up to three animals, not only makes it easy for the animals to enter with its particularly broad ramp, but also has an adjustable partition in the upper area that provides ideal visual protection between the horses. Modern polymer materials inside the box and a non-slip stand ensure that the animals can travel without injuring themselves.
If the horsebox has to be returned empty, it can be collapsed using a foldable “drop top” and transported on the lower deck to save space. This means that the flying horseboxes are not only safe and comfortable for the animals, but are also efficient and save space when being handled.
“We’re noticing a huge demand for flying horseboxes and can now offer our customers flexible leasing concepts that are even better tailored to their needs,” says Martin Kraemer, Head of Marketing & PR at Jettainer, explaining the latest development.

Jettainer handles the complete value-added chain for ULD management – ranging from purchasing ULDs to managing and repairing them and even making available customised IT solutions and financing concepts.
