Cargolux and Unilode extend partnership

Cargolux Airlines International and Unilode Aviation Solutions have extended their partnership with a new agreement that ensures air cargo customers have access to premium transport and handling solutions.

In addition to the current provision of ULDs and related repair and maintenance services, Unilode and Cargolux are now going one step further in the digitalisation process. After equipping its units with Bluetooth tracking tags, Unilode is also installing Bluetooth readers at all warehouses operated by its customers.

Once these readers are installed, there will be digital visibility over ULDs offering further transparency and enhanced tracking for shipments through the interoperability of the reader infrastructure. These integrated and smart systems will render the handling process smoother and more efficient while offering Cargolux’s customers increased peace of mind. This innovative approach will serve to optimise processes in the distribution chain and contribute to the smooth movement of shipments from origin to destination, and is a great step forward when it comes to digitalisation and performance in the air cargo industry.

Franco Nanna, director, global logistics services, Cargolux, commented: “Cargolux has grown significantly since starting its partnership with Unilode over ten years ago, and Unilode has proven its ability to flexibly adjust our ULD requirements in line with our customers’ cargo demand. More importantly, Unilode’s investment into digitalization will benefit the value chain, and especially the cumbersome and time-consuming work done by ground handlers and freight forwarders to manually list and count single ULD references via numerous message and email exchanges will drastically be reduced. This is fundamental to further improve the efficiency of ULD processing.
