Unilode partners with Nordisk for digital tag solution

ULD firm Unilode Aviation Solutions has teamed up with container manufacturer Nordisk Aviation Products to develop an integrated pallet edge rail solution for digital tags.

The partnership will see existing Nordisk pallets, including heavy duty pallets, retrofitted with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5 digital tags, enabling ULD tracking and measurement of temperature and shock. New pallets can also be purchased with pre-installed tags.

The tags are fitted to the pallets with a non-obstructive and “almost invisible” mounting, the companies said.

Richard Betts, Nordisk president, said: “The integrated x-rail digital solution for Unilode has been developed in good cooperation over the past few months. Nordisk is pleased to contribute to Unilode’s award-winning digital transformation programme, which is the next step of evolution in the aviation industry.

“Nordisk pallets will be fitted with the x-rail solution in the coming months and we look forward to the digital pallets being used by Unilode’s customers worldwide.”

Benoît Dumont, Unilode chief executive, added: “It is our clear ambition to bring the aviation industry to the next level of efficiency and supply chain transparency with digital ULDs. Sophisticated and smart solutions require stronger collaboration between the players along the supply chain.

“The digital solution for Nordisk pallets is the result of a successful cooperation and an important step towards our goal to digitalise Unilode’s entire ULD fleet for the benefit of all our current and future customers.”
