Korean Air inks ULD management agreement with Unilode
June 21, 2019: Korean Air has inked five-year ULD management contract with ULD management solutions provider Unilode Aviation Solutions.
As part of this agreement, Unilode will manage Korean’s air entire fleet of more than 16,000 containers and pallets.
This new agreement creates one of the largest ULD management partnerships in the industry and will see the setup of a regional ULD management office at Korean Air's hub in Incheon and the takeover of Korean Air's existing ULD maintenance and repair facility at Incheon International Airport.
Unilode will provide additional services including the management of Korean Air's cool containers and horse stalls, and will also take care of the supply of pallet accessories within Korean Air's global network. Unilode will supply pallets and lightweight AKE containers from its global ULD pool.
Samsug Noh, senior vice president head of Cargo Business Division, Korean Air said: "One of the main drivers in Korean Air's decision to outsource the management of its entire ULD operations was to be able to reduce ULD imbalances in Korean Air's global network of more than 100 destinations, for which Unilode's ULD pooling model provided the best solution. The value of Unilode's ULD management solutions will be further strengthened by its digital transformation programme, which will increase visibility, efficiency and transparency in the supply chain, enabling Korean Air to enhance service delivery to its own customers."
