Unilode Aviation Solutions, the global leader in outsourced Unit Load Device (ULD) management and repair solutions, and Menzies Aviation, the global aviation logistics specialist, have agreed to install Unilode’s Bluetooth® ULD readers at all Menzies facilities worldwide to increase ULD and cargo visibility in the aviation supply chain.

Unilode’s ULDs are equipped with a Bluetooth® tag, which is able to transmit data on the geolocation of the aviation containers and pallets, in addition to providing other relevant information on the cargo, including temperature, humidity, shock, light and pressure. The infrastructure relies on a network of Bluetooth® readers and mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Unilode’s digital solution won industry-wide recognition as the recipient of the IATA Air Cargo Innovation Award last year.
