Unilode's digital ULD solution now available for Nordisk pallets
April 17, 2019: ULD management and repair solutions provider Unilode Aviation Solutions and Nordisk Aviation Products, one of the leading ULD manufacturers, have developed an integrated pallet edge rail solution for digital tags.
Unilode has started equipping its ULD fleet with digital tags based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5 technology. The solution developed for Nordisk pallets meets Unilode's objective to provide a reliable, durable, yet in daily operations almost invisible and non-obstructive mounting solution for digital pallet tags.
Existing Nordisk pallets, including heavy duty pallets, will be retrofitted with the digital tags, enabling ULD tracking and measurement of temperature and shock. New pallets can be acquired ex-works with a pre-installed tag.
Richard Betts, president, Nordisk said: " Nordisk pallets will be fitted with the x-rail solution in the coming months and we look forward to the digital pallets being used by Unilode's customers worldwide."
Benoit Dumont, CEO, Unilode said: "It is our clear ambition to bring the aviation industry to the next level of efficiency and supply chain transparency with digital ULDs. Sophisticated and smart solutions require stronger collaboration between the players along the supply chain. The digital solution for Nordisk pallets is the result of a successful cooperation and an important step towards our goal to digitalise Unilode's entire ULD fleet for the benefit of all our current and future customers.'
