Unilode and PalNet develop digital pallet solution


Unilode Aviation Solutions and PalNet have jointly developed an integrated digital solution for pallets to minimise the risk of damage or loss of digital tags.

The digital technology is based on Bluetooth Low Energy 5, enabling ULD tracking and measurement of temperature and shock.

The solution will be introduced to Unilode’s ULD fleet from Q2 this year, and is also available for non-Unilode customers.

All existing PalNet pallets including heavy duty pallets, can be retrofitted with the integrated digital solution, and pallets can be acquired with a pre-installed tag.

Klaus Demtroeder, CEO of PalNet says: “The cooperation between PalNet and Unilode is testament to a long and trusted partnership. We are pleased to be able to offer a product jointly with Unilode that meets our high-quality standard and does not impair with our requirements from an engineering perspective.”

Benoit Dumont, CEO of Unilode says: “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.”
