Towards a lighter, greener future: CHEP Aerospace Solutions and Fiji Airways renew ULD management partnership

February 1, 2016

CHEP Aerospace Solutions, the leading global provider of outsourced ULD pooling and repair solutions, is delighted to announce the renewal of its ULD management partnership with Fiji Airways, Fiji’s national airline and proud flag carrier, for a further five years.

As part of the new contract, CHEP will introduce new lightweight containers from its 80,000 strong pool of assets to support Fiji Airways in reducing their fuel costs and lowering their CO2 emissions and help towards their sustainability targets.

Reflecting on the current and continued success, Fiji Airways General Manager for Freight, Watson Seeto, said: “Our outsourcing agreement with CHEP has returned the expected benefits of reduced costs and improved efficiencies and we are pleased to continue to entrust our ULD supply and management requirements to CHEP. As we would like to equip our fleet of modern aircraft with lightweight containers, we value the benefits of utilising a common pool of fuel-efficient composite units. CHEP’s worldwide network also provides significant overlaps with other pool customers which means that we don’t need to invest in more ULDs than absolutely necessary for our operations and we only pay for the assets that we actually use.”

CHEP Aerospace Solutions President, Dr. Ludwig Bertsch, said: “We have worked in partnership to develop a range of tailor-made solutions that support Fiji Airways’ growth at the lowest total cost whilst delivering significant improvements in sustainability, and look forward to our continued relationship.”
