Unilode Unveil digitization Program for Saudia and Saudia Cargo
In 2016, the leading global provider of outsourced Unit Load Device (ULD) management and repair solutions, Unilode Aviation Solutions, was awarded the contract by Saudia and Saudia Cargo to manage all their containers and pallets. Handling operations officially started in early 2017, since then a repair station was opened for the maintenance and repair of Saudia and Saudia Cargo’s ULD fleet.
Unilode, as part of their ongoing collaboration with Saudia and Saudia Cargo, will soon roll out their state-of-the-art ULD digitization program. The new program will help Saudia and Saudia Cargo to gain a competitive advantage in the market by offering value-added services to their customer that weren’t available before.
CEO for Unilode, Benoît Dumont said, “Unilode is committed to providing breakthrough innovative solutions to its customers, which can help them enhance their operations and keep their business one step ahead of the competition. The partnership aspect of Unilode’s ULD management agreements with its customers has always been at the forefront of our business and with our digital transformation program being rolled out to the market we will further improve our portfolio of value-added solutions offered to our customers. Saudia and Saudia Cargo belong to the world’s fastest growing airlines and we look forward to continuing serving them with Unilode’s flexible and customer-centric ULD management, repair and digitization solutions.”
CEO for Saudi Airlines Cargo Company, Omar Hariri said, “Saudia Cargo aims to serve the air freight industry with a spirit of excellence by continuously enhancing service levels and developing effective logistics solutions to the highest industry standards. The full digitalization of our ULD fleet by Unilode will enable us to achieve just that, allowing us to have better quality assurance, more insights and greater visibility throughout our network, which will develop our cargo capabilities.”
Saudia CEO, Jaan Albrecht added, “Saudia is pleased to see the current successful collaboration with Unilode extended to include an advanced ULD tracking solution that will further drive planning efficiencies and associated cost savings. Unilode has already demonstrated its expertise and flexibility to supply the right assets to meet Saudia’s ULD needs, and the digitization program will help gain more control, make certain manual tasks redundant and ultimately ensure that we keep up with the continued growth that our airline is seeing year on year.”
