Saudia Cargo extends partnership with Unilode
Unilode Aviation Solutions, a specialist in outsourced unit load device (ULD) management, repair and digital services, is extending its ULD management partnership with Saudia Cargo until 2028.
Saudia Cargo has access to a fleet of 90 wide-body aircraft and flies to 87 destinations. The passenger and cargo divisions awarded the supply and management of their 21,000-strong container and pallet fleet to Unilode in 2017, which created one of the largest ULD management partnerships in the industry.
Over the past five years, Unilode has transitioned Saudia Cargo to new, 20 kg lighter solid door containers, which have enabled significant fuel and carbon emission savings.
The new agreement will also see Unilode replace the standard AKE containers with lightweight units from its ULD pool for additional synergy and sustainability benefits. (cj)
