We are focused on ULD management and offer excellent products, which are continuously improved, based on the latest technology and research results.

You will save fuel by using robust as well as cost-efficient lightweight containers and benefit from the results of the intensive testing we have accomplished with a recognized institute for materials testing.  You will optimize your internal logistics through RFID enabled ULDs, which are developed in close collaboration with research institutes and manufacturers.  

But that’s not all - with our innovative IT solution Jettware, we provide the tools to efficiently manage the largest ULD fleet in the airline industry.

You will use reliable and easily accessible web-based IT tools. You no longer have to worry about IT availability or performance. You will use self-explanatory tracking applications and save on training efforts. You benefit from seamless integration into your procedures through an easily adaptable and fault-tolerant messaging technology.

You no longer spend hours compiling reports – you simply subscribe to our standard reports or use our latest innovation, the ULD Management Cockpit, to get comprehensive transparency.

You won’t lose control even though you have outsourced your complete ULD management.
You can concentrate on your core business – we take care of the ULDs!



It is our goal to offer ULD management at lower cost than airlines can achieve by themselves. Customized financial solutions play an increasingly important role for an airline when it comes to implementation of ULD management. We find the right solution for you and (according to our benchmarks with our outperforming airline customers) 17-19% cost cutting within your ULD budget is achievable.

“What you use is what you pay” Through the implementation of an accounting and logistic system and detailed analysis, transparency of ULD management costs is provided to you.

Outsourcing ULD management reduces cash needed up front and provides predictable monthly cost. In addition, the transformation from fixed into variable cost gives you the chance to react to environmental changes.

It is our objective to make our business together profitable for both sides and build a strong relationship to your airlines.
