ULD specialist Unilode Aviation Solutions has appointed Mohammed Akhlaq as chief commercial officer.
Akhlaq has over 30 years of experience in senior commercial and operational roles in the aviation industry and has worked closely with airlines, ground handlers and logistics companies.
His most recent role was as chief commercial officer for Europe at dnata, where he helped the company to grow significantly, said Unilode.
Ross Marino, chief executive of Unilode, said: “I am delighted that Mohammed has joined Unilode, and I am confident that he will play a major role in enabling us to enhance our market position and to strengthen Unilode’s undisputed leader position in the ULD and galley cart sector.
“He will be a key member of our Executive Leadership Team and ensure that we have a commercial strategy that will produce optimal results and position Unilode for further growth and success.”
Akhlaq said: “I am thrilled to join Unilode and lead the company’s commercial strategy to capture new opportunities and further increase Unilode’s share in the outsourced ULD and galley cart solutions market.
“This is an exciting and challenging time as our industry bounces back after the pandemic, and I am looking forward to working together with my new team to retain existing accounts, expand our customer portfolio and provide new service offerings in the aviation market.”
In April, Unilode announced it had reached the milestone of 100,000 ULDs live in its outsourced container and pallet fleet.
