Cathay Pacific Airways and CHEP Aerospace Solutions, the leading independent provider of outsourced Unit Load Device (ULD) and galley cart services, have signed a five-year renewable agreement for the supply and management of ULDs and pallet accessories.

CHEP will acquire Cathay Pacific’s fleet of 25,000 ULDs, convert the majority of their containers to modern composite units weighing 58 kg, and supply a fleet of lightweight containers. This fast transition to a lightweight container fleet will enhance operation efficiency over the first five years of their partnership, contributing to the sustainable development commitments of both companies. CHEP will supply Cathay Pacific with a dedicated, branded fleet of lightweight containers, and fulfil global cargo pallet requirements through CHEP’s pooling system, providing significant synergy benefits to Cathay Pacific through the cross-utilisation of pallet assets with existing CHEP customers including AirBridgeCargo, Air Canada and Cargolux.
