Unit load device (ULD) outsource management company Jettainer on Friday inaugurated its logistics centre for ULDs – the so-called JettHub.
On an area of 18,000 square metres, all resources are provided to ensure efficient and reliable handling and maintenance of the devices.
The new JettHub in the Four Parx Gross-Gerau offers space for up to 6,600 containers and pallets at the same time. Larger and modern stackers and racks allow for a more efficient use of the storage area, so that around 2.2 times as many ULDs can be stored and maintained in the same area.
A 24/7 shuttle to the Lufthansa Cargo ULD provisioning area is available to transport the containers to the airport quickly and reliably as usual.
As part of the close cooperation with Jettainer, Deufol SE has also moved its workshop to the new JettHub. Here, the premium provider of packaging services carries out maintenance and repair work on pallets and containers in a hall-in-hall construction. This is to ensure that there is no background noise outside the hall from the neighboring metalworking company.
“With the modern JettHub, we are securing long-term development potential for the management and maintenance of the world’s largest fleet of ULDs.
“The move has not only given us more space, but also created additional opportunities for further growth thanks to efficient shelving systems,” said Frank Mühlenkamp, director operations of Jettainer.
