Unilode successfully trials in-flight ULD tracking

SAS Uniloade extend partnership

Unilode Aviation Solutions has passed a major milestone for its digital transformation programme with the successful in-flight trial of its ULD tracking solution.

In collaboration with strategic partner OnAsset Intelligence, Unilode tested its smartphone app allowing tracking of its Bluetooth equipped ULDs by connecting to an aircraft’s wi-fi network.

The trial was conducted on a Hong Kong to Zurich flight with data transmitted including temperature, humidity and light in the aircraft’s belly.

Unilode is undergoing a major digital transformation programme by equipping its fleet of 140,000 ULDs with Bluetooth based tracking devices.

Adam Crossno, CEO of OnAsset Intelligence says: “The entrepreneurial spirit of the team at Unilode is amazing to watch. I am proud my team’s solution can be used to finally solve the missing links in the air cargo supply chain and to provide true value to customers.”

Benoît Dumont, CEO of Unilode says: “We at Unilode are proud to have developed with our strategic partner a mobile application, which meets the customers’ needs and underpins Unilode’s ambition to bring affordable supply chain transparency to the aviation industry.”
