Unilode to roll out ULD digitalization solution for Saudia and Saudia Cargo
March 7, 2019: Unilode Aviation Solutions, that already provides Saudia and Saudia Cargo with ULD management and repair solutions, will now roll out its state-of-the-art digitilisation programme, for the Middle Eastern carrier.
This time, the carrier partners with Unilode to implement its advanced ULD tracking solution.
In 2016, Saudia and Saudia Cargo awarded the management of their containers and pallets to Unilode. Operations commenced in 2017, which among others have seen the opening of a repair station in Jeddah for the maintenance and repair of Saudia and Saudia Cargo's ULD fleet.
Jaan Albrecht, Saudia CEO said: "Unilode has already demonstrated its expertise and flexibility to supply the right assets to meet Saudia's ULD needs, and the digitalisation programme will help gain more control, make certain manual tasks redundant and ultimately ensure that we keep up with the continued growth that our airline is seeing year on year."
Omar Hariri, CEO, Saudi Airlines Cargo Company said: "The full digitalisation of our ULD fleet by Unilode will enable us to achieve just that, allowing us to have better quality assurance, more insights and greater visibility throughout our network, which will develop our cargo capabilities."
Benoit Dumont, Unilode CEO, said: "The partnership aspect of Unilode's ULD management agreements with its customers has always been at the forefront of our business and with our digital transformation programme being rolled out to the market we will further improve our portfolio of value-added solutions offered to our customers."
