Kuehne+Nagel has installed gateway readers at their Frankfurt am Main Airport facility as part of Air France KLM Martinair Cargo's (AFKLMP Cargo) partnership with SkyCell to enhance Unit Load Device (ULD) tracking capabilities across the airline’s ULD fleet.

Installed on 6 May, the readers enable live tracking of SkyMind AFKLMP Cargo ULD devices.

Earlier, in Jan 2024, AFKLMP Cargo chose SkyCell as its preferred ULD tracking partner and leverages SkyCell’s advanced Internet of Things (IoT) technology and the SkyMind platform for real-time visibility into ULD operations.

“This innovative solution, specifically designed for pharmaceutical transport, enables AFKLMP Cargo to enhance control and efficiency in its logistics operations like never before,” reads the release.

SkyMind utilises advanced technology, including sophisticated readers and tags, to offer AFKLMP Cargo real-time visibility into its entire ULD fleet. This visibility empowers them to make informed decisions and operate proactively rather than reactively, generating improved operational efficiency and enhanced customer satisfaction.

“Kuehne+Nagel’s installation of gateway readers at our Frankfurt facility showcases our dedication to embracing innovation and enhancing our services with the needs of our customers in mind,” said Holger Ketz, Global Head of Air Logistics Network & Carrier Management at Kuehne+Nagel. “We are pleased to support Air France KLM Martinair Cargo as the first customer to utilise this highly innovative method of tracking ULDs, further reinforcing our position as an industry leader.”

“With SkyMind, Air France KLM Martinair Cargo will gain complete control over its ULD operations — mitigating the extensive manual efforts historically associated with ULD tracing and tracking, leading to substantial time and cost savings, as well as boosting operational efficiency,” stated Andy Newbold, Global Key Account Director at Air France KLM Martinair Cargo. “We are proud of this important step made by Kuehne+Nagel, showcasing their commitment to pioneering innovative solutions that ultimately benefit our mutual customers.”
