To ensure air cargo customers have access to premium transport and handling solutions as per their requirements, Cargolux Airlines International and Unilode Aviation Solutions have further extended their partnership. After equipping its units with Bluetooth tracking tags, Unilode is also installing Bluetooth readers at all warehouses operated by its customers for digital visibility.
This innovative approach will optimise processes in the distribution chain and contribute to the smooth movement of shipments from origin to destination. According to Franco Nanna, Director – Global Logistics Services, Cargolux, “Unilode’s investment into digitalisation will benefit the value chain, and especially the cumbersome and time-consuming work done by ground handlers and freight forwarders to manually list and count single ULD references via numerous message and email exchanges will drastically be reduced. This is fundamental to further improve the efficiency of ULD processing.” Benoît Dumont, CEO, Unilode, said, “Digitalisation will add further value to our strategic ULD management partnership and Unilode’s digital ULDs will be able to provide significant benefits to Cargolux and its customers in the global supply chain, especially due to the location & temperature monitoring features of our digital assets.”
