Jettainer to open lease&fly hub in Shanghai

Jettainer will open a new hub for its lease&fly ULD leasing service at Shanghai Pudong International Airport in partnership with PACTL West.

Under the agreement, PACTL West, the ground handler for Shanghai Pudong International Airport Public Cargo Terminal Co. Ltd West, will be responsible for handling and storing the ULDs.

The service provides ULDs for short-term and long-term needs with customers gaining access to PMC pallets with the range of containers and pallets due to grow.

PACTL West will ensure that the new service operates smoothly and Jettainer’s Hong Kong office will take care of customer service and sales activities in the region.

Shanghai Pudong is the fourth lease&fly hub after Frankfurt, Abu Dhabi and Hong Kong.

Carsten Hernig, Deputy General Manager VP Sales & Marketing and Production at PACTL, says, “As a ground-handling service provider with the highest standards of quality and professionalism, we can further improve services for airlines and forwarders onsite and in the region. Together with Jettainer we will contribute to meeting the demand for ULDs flexibly at all times.”

Thomas Sonntag, CEO of Jettainer says, “Airlines and forwarders are seeking ad-hoc, short-term and long-term ULD leasing solutions, often with the requirement to have ULDs directly available. The opening of our lease&fly hub in mainland China will add great flexibility to both new and existing customers and is another step in our expansion plans in Asia.”

The announcement was made at the transport logistic Southeast Asia trade fair in Singapore.
