Unilode's digitalisation programme
Since winning the inaugural IATA Air Cargo Innovation Award in 2015 with our ULD tracking solution CanTrack, we have been working closely with our customers to enhance Unilode’s digital ULD tracking technology with user input across the end-to-end value chain.
Unilode accelerates the digital transformation for ULD management solutions by bringing to the market a superior digital solution based on a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 tag fully embedded into the structure of the ULD, which is supported by a global interoperable reader infrastructure.
When building the digital skyway there is no place for proprietary technology and therefore we have decided to make the technology protocols fully interoperable with the technology provided by others. This approach greatly enhances flexibility, which is what the industry and our customers are looking for.

- Increase cargo velocity through greater transparency
ULD digitalisation provides full visibility on your cargo, both on the ground and in flight, anytime, anywhere.
It enables you to operate at lower cost whilst achieving faster throughput.
- Optimise your supply chain management
ULD digitalisation enables individual shipments to become part of a connected ecosystem.
By associating your e-Air Waybill (e-AWB) with a digitised ULD, the ULD becomes a proxy for tracking shipments.
- Improve the utilisation of your equipment
ULD digitalisation optimises the utilisation of your ULDs, improving stock control, availability and (dis)positioning.
Whilst increasing the safety of your ULDs and cargo, you will incur less costs for damage and loss.
- Enhance the service delivery to your customers
ULD digitalisation includes sensor information allowing you to offer quality assurance e.g. on temperature sensitive cargo.
Technology capable of being read in flight makes it possible to take action faster.
- Bring your business analytics to the next level
ULD digitalisation gives you full control and makes it possible to accurately measure your Cargo IQ milestones.
The data generated can be integrated into your own internal Cargo Management systems.
