Unilode launches e-ULD app and enhanced digital platforms

Mar 25, 2024

Unilode Aviation Solutions, the market leader in outsourced unit load device (ULD) management, repair and digital services, is thrilled to announce the launch of its new mobile app called e-ULD, customer portal and enterprise data warehouse (EDW) to provide enhanced data analytics and significant operational and cost benefits to its ULD management and digital customers across its global network.

Unilode owns and manages the world’s largest digitally enabled fleet of approximately 165,000 ULDs and operates over 700 readers in more than 500 facilities worldwide. Unilode’s unique ULD pooling concept combined with its digital capabilities increase asset utilisation, reduce costs and contribute to sustainability goals.

Unilode’s new mobile app is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, and replaces its previous application for ULD scanning and tracing. It aims to reduce manual work on Stock Control Messages (SCMs), ULD loan transfers and other operational processes, and helps reduce ULD losses, repairs and inefficiencies.

Bas Vermeer, Unilode Chief Information Officer, said: “We are thrilled about the launch of our new e-ULD app, enterprise data warehouse and customer portal, which ensure that Unilode continues being at the forefront of technology in the ULD industry.

These developments enable an even closer collaboration with our airline customers and their ground handlers and further improve the management of Unilode’s digital ULD fleet. The e-ULD app enables on and off-ramp scanning of ULDs which increases the number of sightings for ULDs outside the direct range of the reader network. The new enterprise data warehouse and customer portal has been a substantial investment and aims to provide our customers with real-time data about asset utilisation, location and movement of ULDs.

We are proud of our in-house development team that continues to work closely with our customers to develop solutions that meet and exceed their expectations. These new developments will ensure that Unilode stays ahead in the digital transformation of the aviation industry and sets new standards for efficiency, reliability and innovation.”
