Unilode, Hawaiian Airlines extend ULD management partnership
March 13, 2019: Unilode Aviation Solutions, Unit Load Device (ULD) management and repair solutions provider, has renewed a long-term agreement for the management of the ULD fleet of US carrier Hawaiian Airlines.
The partnership between the two companies started in 2014.
Brad Matheny, managing director of Cargo, Hawaiian Airlines said: "Thanks to Unilode's expertise and flexibility, we always have the right assets to meet our ULD needs, including some special units, which Unilode has provided for Hawaiian's ATR-72 fleet in an all-cargo configuration. We look forward to advancing our partnership and operations, and fully digitising our ULD fleet for greater control and visibility throughout our network, as well as increased cargo and passenger revenues."
Benoit Dumont, CEO, Unilode said: "Unilode's digitalisation programme will provide Hawaiian Airlines with data and reports to help them offer value-added services to their own customers and give them a competitive edge in the market. Hawaiian Airlines will continue to use Unilode's ULD pooling model that ensures access to the required ULDs on short notice, supplies modern lightweight containers as part of the ULD replacement programme, and provides ULD repairs at its hub and main airport stations."
Hawaiian Airlines is one of the largest passenger carriers in the United States and the longest serving airline in Hawaii.
