Unilode Aviation Solutions and AviusULD have announced the renewal of their long-term agreement for the supply of ULD containers and pallets.

The ULD management company and AviusULD, formerly known as Safran Cabin Cargo, a manufacturer and distributor of ULDs, have built a strategic partnership over a period of more than 15 years.

With the renewal of their long-term agreement, the companies expect that more ULD types, improved volumes and lead times, and continuous cost, product and sustainability improvement opportunities will be provided to both partners.

AviusULD chief executive Klaus Hofmann said: “I am delighted to confirm our commitment to a sustained partnership with Unilode through a long-term contract. Unilode is one of our key customers and we are looking forward to supporting them in order to meet the ever-evolving needs of the industry.

“AviusULD will continue to supply Unilode with robust, lightweight, easy-to-repair containers and pallets, aiming to minimise the total ownership cost for Unilode and their airline customers. Additionally, we stand by our commitment to world-class after-sales service, prompt delivery of spare parts, and technical support.”

Unilode chief executive Ross Marino said: “Unilode and AviusULD have enjoyed a strong relationship over the years, with more than 50% of Unilode’s fleet of 160,000 ULDs being supplied by AviusULD. AviusULD’s standard aluminium containers have the right combination of weight, durability and reliability and the lowest total cost of ownership.

“We are also able to boost the digitalisation of our fleet by having our ULDs equipped with digital tags in the production stage.”
