Saudia and Saudia Cargo embark on a digitalisation journey with Unilode

Posted 6 March 2019 · Add Comment

Saudia and Saudia Cargo awarded the management of their containers and pallets to Unilode Aviation Solutions, a provider of outsourced Unit Load Device (ULD) management and repair solutions, in 2016.

 

Operations commenced in 2017, which among others have seen the opening of a repair station in Jeddah for the maintenance and repair of Saudia and Saudia Cargo's ULD fleet. As part of the next phase of the collaboration between the parties, Unilode will be rolling out its state-of-the-art ULD digitalisation programme, which will enable Saudia and Saudia Cargo to gain a competitive advantage in the market by offering value-added services to their customers.

Jaan Albrecht, Saudia CEO, said: "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 digitalisation programme 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."

Omar Hariri, Saudi Airlines Cargo Company CEO, 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 digitalisation 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."       

Benoît Dumont, Unilode CEO, 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 programme 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 digitalisation solutions."
