Unilode Aviation Solutions now has 100,000 digital unit load devices (ULDs) live in its outsourced container and pallet fleet, supporting 40 ULD management customers.
In 2019, Unilode’s digitalisation project was recognised with the Air Cargo Innovation Award by IATA.
Further investment and partnerships have enabled Unilode to turn its digitalisation project into a reality, providing faster and more accurate ULD data collection, higher asset availability, and reduction of ULD losses, said the company.
“Digitising 100,000 ULDs is a great achievement” said Ross Marino, Unilode chief executive, adding: “We have greatly improved ULD positioning and reduced the number of unreported and lost ULDs.
“We have automated several manual tasks in data collection & reporting and provided additional commercial benefits for our customers.
“We will continue to focus on digitising the remainder of our ULD fleet. This is a key business strategy and priority for us.”
