Pallet provider Chep has launched Chep Aerospace Solutions, the world's largest independent network of pooled unit load devices (ULDs) and repair centres.

ULDs are used by airlines for the transportation of cargo, baggage and mail.

The launch follows parent company Brambles' acquisition of Unitpool in August 2010 and the purchase of JMI Aerospace in June 2001. Brambles also plans to acquire Driessen Services for US$10.3 million following approvals.

The new service brings Chep's global experience in pallet and container pooling across sectors, including consumer goods, fresh food, automotive, manufacturing and chemicals, to the aviation sector

Chep Aerospace Solutions president Dr Ludwig Bertsch says the company's global pooling and supply-chain management experience across multiple sectors, combined with its aviation expertise, provides a world-first in end-to-end pooling solutions and repairs for airline ULDs.

Once the Driessen Services acquisition is complete, the company will manage and
service over 190,000 ULDs and airline galley carts at more than 300 airports globally.
