SAS Cargo to digitize its ULD operations in collaboration with Unilode
March 12, 2019: Yesterday SAS Cargo announced that it will further deepen their collaboration with Unilode in order to ditigise its ULD operations.
The digital solutions will be implemented to SAS Cargo's container fleet starting quarter 2 of 2019.
Scandinavia's leading carrier%u2019s agreement with Unilode forms part of Unilode's digital transformation programme, which is based on BLE5 technology and a global reader infrastructure.
It enables ULD tracking and the measurement of temperature, humidity, light and shock in air freight shipments, among other benefits.
The two companies first collaborated in 2011, for the conversion of SAS Cargo's ULD fleet to lightweight containers.
Leif Rasmussen, SAS Cargo Group President and CEO, said: "The implementation of innovative and competitive digital solutions requires that all stakeholders put the customer at the centre, ensure transparency and integrate a digital transformation strategy that offers a coherent customer experience through all channels. Unilode's digital transformation programme supports SAS Cargo's digital initiatives by providing a customer-centric approach and offering value-added services to SAS Cargo's customers. "
Benoit Dumont, Unilode CEO said: "The aviation industry is embracing digitalisation in the supply chain to optimise operations, enhance visibility and give more insights to the customers. We are pleased that we can accelerate SAS Cargo's digital ambitions with the digitalisation of the ULD operations, which we have been managing for eight years.%u201D
