SIA Cargo awards management agreement contract to CHEP

Singapore Airlines Cargo (SIA Cargo) has awarded a long-term unit load device (ULD) maintenance and repair fleet management contract to CHEP Aerospace Solutions.

CHEP will provide maintenance and repair services in Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney, Melbourne, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Brussels, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas, with additional stations likely to be included in the global repair network.

CHEP’s repair shops are certified by the aviation authorities of the various regions and comply with the airworthiness approval requirements of CAAS, CASA, EASA and FAA.

In addition to the core ULD maintenance and repair services, CHEP will provide storage, control, inventory reporting and delivery of pallet nets, corner ropes, straps and other consumables at some of the appointed stations.

CHEP’s proprietary repair management software ACTIS will provide SIA Cargo with real-time insight into all elements of the repair process.

CHEP Aerospace Solutions president, Dr. Ludwig Bertsch says: “Our new five-year agreement with Singapore Airlines Cargo further strengthens the maintenance and repair division of our business and increases our participation in the Asia Pacific region where we have a ULD management agreement in place with another major carrier, Cathay Pacific Airways, in addition to MRO agreements with Qantas, Air New Zealand and other airlines.

“Although our parent company will change within the next few weeks, as announced to the market on 2 November 2016, it’s business as usual for us and our customers, and we are committed to continue to deliver value to our ever-expanding customer base.”
