SAS Cargo and Unilode deepen collaboration to enable digital tracking

SAS Cargo and Unilode Aviation Solutions are further deepening their collaboration, with Unilode “digitalising” SAS Cargo’s container fleet, starting in the second quarter of 2019.

This agreement forms part of Unilode’s digital transformation programme, which is based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE5) technology and a global reader infrastructure, and enables ULD tracking and the measurement of temperature, humidity, light and shock in air freight shipments, among other benefits.The two said the development was another major milestone in a long-standing collaboration, which started in 2011 with the conversion of SAS Cargo’s ULD fleet to lightweight containers, enabling SAS Cargo to take the next step in fulfilling its digital ambitions.

Leif Rasmussen, SAS Cargo Group President and CEO, said: “Unilode’s digital transformation programme supports SAS Cargo’s digital initiatives by offering value-added services to SAS Cargo’s customers. The digitisation of our ULD fleet will bring SAS Cargo to the next level of supply chain excellence.”
