Unilode reaches impressive milestone

April 1, 2022

Unilode Aviation Solutions, the market leader in outsourced unit load device (ULD) management, repair and digital services announces a significant milestone. An unrivalled 100,000 digital ULDs are now live in its container and pallet fleet, supporting Unilode’s 40 ULD management customers.

In 2019 Unilode’s digitalisation project was recognised with the Air Cargo Innovation Award by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Further investment and innovative partnerships have enabled Unilode to turn its digitalisation project into a reality. Unilode now owns and operates the world’s largest digital ULD fleet, providing significant benefits to its customers. Faster and more accurate ULD data collection, higher asset availability, and reduction of ULD losses all enhance the experience.

“Digitising 100,000 ULDs is a great achievement” says Ross Marino, Chief Executive Officer at Unilode. “We have greatly improved ULD positioning and reduced the number of unreported and lost ULDs. We have automated several manual tasks in data collection & reporting and provided additional commercial benefits for our customers. We will continue to focus on digitising the remainder of our ULD fleet. This is a key business strategy and priority for us.

The Unilode team has worked tirelessly to reach this milestone and I am proud and grateful to them for this achievement. We will continue to innovate and enhance our digital service offering, always keeping our customers’ needs at the forefront of everything we do.”
