Cargolux and Unilode enhance ULD tracking capabilities

By Damian Brett

Unilode and Cargolux will install Bluetooth readers at cargo warehouses in order to increase visibility of ULD and create efficiencies.

Unilode, which provides ULDs to Cargolux along with related repair and maintenance services, said that the readers will provide “further transparency and enhanced tracking for shipments”.

Franco Nanna, Cargolux director global logistics services, said: “Unilode’s investment into digitalisation will benefit the value chain, and especially the cumbersome and time-consuming work done by ground handlers and freight forwarders to manually list and count single ULD references via numerous message and email exchanges will drastically be reduced. This is fundamental to further improve the efficiency of ULD processing.”

Unilode chief executive Benoît Dumont added: “Digitalisation will add further value to our strategic ULD management partnership and Unilode’s digital ULDs will be able to provide significant benefits to Cargolux and its customers in the global supply chain, especially due to the location and temperature monitoring features of our digital assets. We look forward to our continued successful partnership.”
