US Airways outsources ULD management to save $2 million over 5 years

US Airways is the first U.S. international carrier to outsource Unit Load Device (ULD) management in a sale and leaseback deal that furnishes ownership and administration of the airline’s ULD fleet to Jettainer GmbH. As part of its corporate cost-savings initiatives, US Airways has transferred its entire fleet of air cargo and passenger flight containers and pallets to Jettainer. Jettainer will manage the airline’s entire ULD operations for a monthly fee which covers ULD supply chain management services including order management, repair and maintenance, tracking and tracing, account management and other fleet administration services. Jettainer is expected to save US Airways nearly $2 million on ULD-related costs of ownership over the duration of the five-year contract through focused management services and dedicated technologies.
