MASkargo signs ULD tracking solution deal

MASkargo has signed a deal with TW Control, CORE Transport Technologies and Nordisk Aviation Products for a tracking solution for its fleet of unit load devices (ULD) and pallets.

The COREInsight tracking solution will be incorporated into the Malaysian carrier’s containers and pallets supplied by Nordisk. TWC is the local partner appointed by CORE to implement the tag and reader tracker for MASkargo and the developer of the ULD Management Software associated with the technology.

MASkargo chief executive officer, Ibrahim Mohamed Salleh said: ““Real-time ULD tracking information will enable MASkargo to more accurately monitor and replan shipments that are delayed due to irregular operations, such as extreme weather events.

“This will enable customers to have end-to-end tracking of the ULDs starting in their own warehouses throughout the journey to the final destination.”

CORE managing director, Ian Craig said MASkargo will be able to reap the benefits of the system from Day 1 as once the tags are attached to MASkargo ULDs and added “they can immediately track their travel journey due to the large coverage of our reader network – the largest IoT for air cargo in the world”.

TWC accountable manager, Kumarason Kandiah said it was excited to be part of MASkargo’s ULD cargo transformation towards Internet of Things (IoT) by installing the ULD tracking solution from Core. “This is a radical and bold transformation for a typical 145 Repair ULD workshop and we intend to use it to the fullest to assist our clients in ULD management,” he added.

Nordisk vice president of sales and business development – Asia Pacific and People’s Republic of China, Boon Yang Sim said: “With this ground breaking agreement between MASkargo and CORE, Nordisk’s customers will be able to keep track of their ULDs and more actively manage shipments across the board.”
