By Rachelle Harry

Unilode Aviation Solutions and dnata have signed an agreement that involves all dnata warehouses being equipped with Unilode’s Bluetooth readers to “enhance the efficiency” of their customers’ ULD operations.

Benoît Dumont, Unilode chief executive, explained: “Unilode is currently digitising its entire ULD fleet of 140,000 units with tags and is rolling out a Bluetooth reader network infrastructure in over 250 locations worldwide.

“Our new agreement with dnata will help us accelerate the creation of Unilode’s digital ecosystem and enable us to increase ULD visibility, data accuracy and asset stock control, in addition to providing our customers with important information on their cargo. We look forward to partnering with dnata in Unilode’s innovative digital journey.”

Guillaume Crozier, dnata’s divisional vice president for operations and product development, added: “We are delighted to partner with Unilode to deliver more value for our customers by taking advantage of the latest technologies.

“Unilode’s innovative solutions will further increase our digital footprint and help us efficiently manage and track ULDs across our operations.”

In 2019, Unilode’s Bluetooth-based tracking solution for ULDs won the IATA Air Cargo Innovation Award.
