SEOUL: June 20, 2019. Unilode has landed another ULD management and repairs contract, this time from Korean Air. The five-year deal will see Unilode responsible for the Korean flag carrier's entire 16,000-strong container and pallet fleet.

Unilode will provide additional services including the management of Korean Air's cool containers and horse stalls, and will also take care of the supply of pallet accessories within Korean Air's global network. Unilode will supply pallets and lightweight AKE containers from its global ULD pool.

"One of the main drivers in Korean Air's decision to outsource the management of its entire ULD operations was to be able to reduce ULD imbalances in Korean Air's global network of more than 100 destinations, for which Unilode's ULD pooling model provided the best solution. Unilode's proven expertise in all aspects of ULD operations has convinced Korean Air that entrusting Unilode with the management of the entire ULD fleet, including cool containers, horse stalls and accessories will optimise our operations and reduce our repair-related costs,” said Samsug Noh, Korean Air senior vice president and head of the airline’s Cargo Business Division (left of picture with Unilode CEO Benoît Dumont).

“The value of Unilode's ULD management solutions will be further strengthened by its digital transformation programme, which will increase visibility, efficiency and transparency in the supply chain, enabling Korean Air to enhance service delivery to its own customers. We are pleased to award the ULD management agreement to Unilode and look forward to a successful partnership," he added.
