Jettainer tests next generation of digital container

Lufthansa IT experts help equip the unit load device with new functions

   Jettainer, the leading international service partner for outsourced unit load device (ULD) management, has started testing its enhanced digital container.
   Together with IT experts from Lufthansa Industry Solutions, Jettainer has revised the original device and equipped it with new functions. The focus now is on registering and recording shocks and damage as well as temperature changes.
   Initially 100 units will be equipped with the new device for test operation in order to intensively verify functionality and data quality. The main objective is for the incoming sensory information to provide reliable information that will allow maintenance and repairs to be better planned and accelerated — and help optimize the overall efficiency.
   “The technical possibilities of the digital container enable us to reduce the time and financial expenditure for repair measures. With our 90,000 units in use worldwide, this has enormous potential,” says Carsten Hernig, managing director of Jettainer GmbH. “At the same time, the new containers also increase our ability to identify the originators of the damage. And that helps us to motivate people to implement a more responsible handling of the ULDs.”
   Jettainer GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Cargo AG. Jettainer currently is responsible for the management of about 90,000 ULDs for 25 airlines.
