ACL Airshop: Strategic Advances Worldwide, with Technology Acceleration and Growth Investments

ACL Airshop continues expanding geographically to keep pace with rising industry trends, and investing for growth in each of its lines of business. The company’s mantra is “Grow the Network,” developing scale and efficiency as its worldwide services system expands. The company listened to its customers, who said “You’re doing well for us in 25 airports, we will love you even more in 50 airports.” Coupled to that crystal-clear strategy are the company’s accelerating investments in ULD Control logistics programs, Bluetooth track and trace on ULD’s, upgraded internal IT assets and ERP systems, new Operations Centers that are being developed in multiple gateway cities (Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and New York), and a state of the art ultramodern new LEAN and GREEN factory that is soon opening in South Carolina USA.

ACL Airshop has doubled each of its operational dimensions in the past 36 months. Its own large ULD fleet has grown from under 25,000 units to over 50,000. Its airport services capabilities have expanded the global footprint from 25 locations to over 50. The supply chain has been expanded and now taps manufacturing resources in South Carolina USA, Germany, China, and Taiwan. None of this dramatic growth happens without substantial cost: ACL Airshop and its very large institutional investors have more than doubled the annual average capital outlays each year, as well. That has been quite deliberate. ACL Airshop is propelling on a new trajectory, a transformation designed to create the largest and best company of its kind in the industry.

Steve Townes, Chairman & CEO of ACL Airshop and founder of Ranger Aerospace, said: “Certainly, we are indeed investing aggressively, but it’s not JUST about money. We are improving every aspect of the service delivery, global scale, technical efficiencies, and people factors in ACL Airshop. We have become a technology-driven ULD logistics solutions enterprise with deep skills and long history in the air cargo sector. It’s a wall-to-wall comprehensive worldwide game-plan, and we are executing it with precision and speed.”  ACL Airshop customers consistently say the company is very nimble, very fast. That, of itself, is a major competitive advantage. In fact, with a single message to sales@aclairshop.com the company’s entire network of 24/7 experts are immediately alerted, and action happens promptly for the customer. The company gauges its service effectiveness in minutes or hours, not days or weeks.

People are a centerpiece consideration in ACL Airshop. The company has launched a “People First” human resources project all around the fast-growing network to improve communications, career development, on-boarding, training, incentive programs, reporting rhythms, and customer service. “As we grow, we need to attract, motivate, grow, and retain the best team in the industry. We already have terrific teams and leaders in place today who have risen to the fast challenge of doubling, and now we are looking to add a few more eagles to the nest,” said Townes. ACL Airshop states that it wants to remain the Employer of Choice for aviation enthusiasts with “The Right Stuff.” 

One of the unique aspects of the company’s offerings is short-term rentals and leasing solutions for airlines’ cargo products requirements. That is where ACL Airshop has made its strongest reputation for Custom ULD Solutions. ACL Airshop has been perfecting this business model for over 3 decades, and is uniquely able to manage the fast-paced rapidly shifting requirements.  Driven by the chaotic inputs and scheduling shifts that ripple through the cargo ecosystem, and further stimulated by E-Commerce, ACL Airshop’s customers know that there will always be a reliable source of spare ULD rentals from ACL Airshop when they are needed in a peak demand period. ACL Airshop also engages long-term contracts with some carriers who want the entrepreneurial nimbleness and speed of service, but with program-based discounts for larger, longer-term logistics arrangements. Some customers are very attracted to the strong combination of ACL Airshop’s ULD Control with the CORE Insight Bluetooth technologies. That predictably yields new efficiencies and cost savings for the carriers, and better service to the carriers’ shippers themselves.
