December 10, 2020: Jettainer, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Cargo AG, announced the launch of cool&fly, a unique management service to maximize the efficient use of temperature-controlled ULDs, particular for Covid-19 vaccines distribution.

“The product is one of a kind, comprising full cool ULD order management, steering and positioning along with monitoring as well as after-service management. It is available to airlines, no matter their other ULD management setup,” says the release.

Temperature-controlled Unit Load Devices (ULDs) are expected to become a limited resource within air transportation. The increasing demand for cool transport solutions and interaction between the growing number of stakeholders will prove complex and time-consuming. Securing supply and managing containers for temperature-sensitive goods is an extremely complex mission that requires absolutely accurate and attentive management. This includes on-time ordering and positioning, as well as constant traceability and monitoring throughout the entire process chain in order to be ready for an immediate response to all eventualities as there is no margin for error due to the highly valuable and sensitive goods involved.

“The logistical challenges involved when transporting vaccines by air are huge. Maximizing the efficient use of the cool ULDs will be key - reliable management of all interfaces from a single point will minimize risks during the transport. cool&fly and our highly experienced cool competence centre provide customers with the perfect solution,” said Thomas Sonntag, Managing Director of Jettainer GmbH.

Jettainer’s dedicated temperature control competence centre in the Middle East will offer customers a single point of contact to ensure the smooth operation of the entire cool ULD journey and has been further resourced to meet the expected demand.

The expert team selects the best rental trip based on Jettainer’s global positioning network and ensures timely delivery through effective positioning and return of cool ULDs.

Continuous monitoring allows for immediate and proactive intervention in the event of irregularities and the provision of 24/7/365 support. cool&fly delivers demonstrable improvements when positioning and repositioning cool containers, thus maximizing the availability of cool ULDs.
