American choses Jettainer

PRESS RELEASE

September 24, 2014: Jettainer has been selected by American Airlines Cargo to manage their fleet of containers and pallets across the American network. Jettainer will equip the world's largest airline, with eco-friendly lightweight containers for the next five years and therefore make a significant contribution to reducing the airline's carbon dioxide emissions and provide fuel cost savings.

American currently uses more than 15,000 ULDs (so-called Unit Load Devices) to transport both air cargo and baggage on board its aircraft. Lightweight containers will replace many of the airline's existing units by March 2015. The lightweight container change will provide over 500,000 gallons (1.9 million litres) in fuel savings and a reduction of more than 5,000 metric tons in carbon dioxide emissions per year. This initiative adds to the other efforts at American with a goal of reducing their overall carbon footprint.

"We're very proud that the world's largest airline is now one of our customers. It's our aim to continue to grow in the Americas and further expand our market leadership by using our innovative solutions," Carsten Hernig, Managing Director of Jettainer GmbH, emphasizes.

"ULD management is a key element to achieving high efficiency and customer service in air cargo transportation," says Jim Butler, President of American Airlines Cargo. "It's essential we ensure the timely availability of ULDs in the correct locations to safeguard the operational performance of all our cargo products and optimize revenue. By working with Jettainer, we believe we will achieve these goals and significantly improve American's environmental footprint as well," he adds.

At Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the airline's largest hub, Jettainer will soon open a new office to support the management of American's ULDs as well as five other operational bases in the U.S. In addition to the new support locations, Jettainer specialists have developed the "JettApp" application to log ULD movements. This innovative technology provides an advanced solution to manage and administer container fleets by efficiently logging ULD data quickly and accurately. The container fleet for American's hubs and their most important international destinations will benefit from this technology.
