Korean Air Cargo has awarded the management of its entire container and pallet fleet to Unilode Aviation Solutions for a five-year term.
The agreement creates one of the largest ULD management partnership, and will see a regional ULD management office set up at Korean Air’s hub at Seoul’s Incheon International Airport.
Unilode will take over Korean Air’s existing ULD maintenance and repair facility at Incheon airport.
The provider of outsourced ULD services will provide additional services including managing cool containers and horse stalls, and will take care of the supply of pallet accessories within Korean Air’s global network.
Samsug Noh, senior vice president head of cargo business division at Korean Air says: “Unilode’s proven expertise in all aspects of ULD operations has convinced Korean Air that entrusting Unilode with the management of the entire ULD fleet, including cool containers, horse stalls and accessories will optimise our operations and reduce our repair-related costs.”
Benoît Dumont, CEO of Unilode says: “Unilode’s digital transformation programme with state-of-the-art product, hardware and software solutions will further enhance the value of Unilode’s services and will play an important part in our customers’ efforts to drive excellence in their own operations.”
