Air Pacific, the national carrier of Fiji, has picked CHEP Aerospace Solutions to supply and manage its fleet of Unit Load Devices (ULDs) under a new three-year contract.
CHEP will provide Air Pacific with containers and pallets from its global pool of more than 45,000 ULDs, eliminating administration and reducing costs for the airline to position, maintain and manage its own ULD fleet. As Air Pacific transitions to a fleet of newer, more fuel-efficient planes, CHEP will also provide newer ULDs, enabling the airline to save on capital expenditure and focus on its core business.
“For more than five years we have had an excellent relationship for the maintenance and repair of our ULDs with JMI Aerospace, which is now part of CHEP Aerospace Solutions. So our decision to outsource our ULD supply and management to CHEP Aerospace Solutions was a simple one,” said Francis Tan, Air Pacific’s freight manager. “Taking that extra step to outsource fully supply and logistics, as well as maintenance and repair, to CHEP is already delivering additional cost savings and benefits to our business.”
