Jettainer celebrates 20 years of leadership

Jettainer is celebrating two decades of industry leadership as it marks its 20th anniversary with a bright outlook for the future. Today, Jettainer operates the most efficient fleet of Unit Load Devices (ULDs), which numbers in the six digits, across 500 locations worldwide, serving some of the largest and most reputable airlines. Initially established way back on April 27 in 2004 as a joint venture between Lufthansa Cargo and the U.S. mobile asset management firm TrenStar Inc, Jettainer became a fully owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Cargo AG in 2009 and has experienced significant growth since its inception. The global leader in ULD management has been dedicated to spearheading impactful innovations from the start, continuously committing to sustainability in the industry.

Founded in 2004, Jettainer began operations with an initial ULD fleet of approximately 27,000 units at a site near Frankfurt Airport. Since then, Jettainer has evolved into a global leader in ULD management and now operates at 15 major hubs in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas. Its teams of aviation experts now manage a six-digit number of ULDs for a wide range of international passenger and cargo airlines.

In 2014, the company expanded into the American market with the establishment of Jettainer Americas Inc. This subsidiary serves a growing number of customers in North, Central and South America with integrated teams positioned in strategic locations including Dallas, Chicago, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. In 2017, Jettainer opened its Temperature Control Competence Center located in Abu Dhabi, where a specialized team ensures the efficient global management of temperature-controlled containers. Adapting to globalization, market demands and customer needs, Jettainer has continuously enhanced and strengthened its worldwide set-up. Building on its established presence in the Americas, the ULD management expert introduced a reinforced regional structure effective 2023. This new setup features General Managers who are dedicated to ensuring operational efficiency and maintaining close customer relationships across the Middle East, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent, Europe, and Asia.  

Jettainer has consistently leveraged innovative technologies to enhance ULD management, increase efficiency and deliver substantial value to its customers and partners. Jettainer introduced JettWare, its in-house IT solution, in the early days, and has continually upgraded the platform to integrate the latest technological advancements. This digital solution, alongside the mobile version JettApp – the industry’s first ULD management app – has significantly streamlined ULD management, for both Jettainer and their customers. In collaboration with university partners, Jettainer has developed a sophisticated decision-support system for ULD management that utilizes big data and machine learning. JettWare and the new generation, JettWare NG, are already incorporating initial artificial intelligence capabilities, with plans for continuous advancements that will boost workflow support even further. To increase transparency and to gain valuable insights into optimizing the lifetime use of ULDs, Jettainer has created digital twins for each ULD in its fleet.
