Unilode and PalNet develop integrated digital solution for pallets
March 12, 2019: ULD management solutions provider Unilode and ULD manufacturer PalNet have jointly developed an integrated digital solution for all types of PalNet pallets.
The integrated solution minimises the risk of damage or loss of the digital tag and does not obstruct daily operations or interfere with pallet stacking.
Unilode's digital technology is based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5, enables ULD tracking and measurement of temperature and shock.
The solution will be implemented to the entire ULD fleet of Unilode, starting second quarter of 2019. It is also available for non-Unilode customers. All existing PalNet pallets, including heavy duty pallets, can be retrofitted with the integrated digital solution. Pallets can also be acquired ex-works with a pre-installed tag.
Benoit Dumont, CEO, Unilode said: "We are confident that we can deliver a durable, superior and DO-160 conform product to the aviation industry, which will not only enhance ULD management operations, but also add value throughout the supply chain. We are pleased to have developed this solution in collaboration with PalNet."
