CHEP Aerospace launches ULD management app


CHEP Aerospace Solutions, an independent provider of outsourced unit load device (ULD) and galley cart management services, has announced the launch of CHEP Focus, a unique mobile application for iOS and Android devices.

The CHEP Focus app simplifies several ULD-related processes which are currently mainly paper-based and is designed to save time and money for airlines, ground handling agents, freight forwarders and other key industry stakeholders.

CHEP Focus records and transmits ULD messages in the standard IATA format, manages and updates stock and serviceability information, submits adhoc track and trace requests for individual container and pallet units, and is able to share ULD movement information with configurable recipients via email. The app liaises with CHEP’s web-based software tools and ensures accurate and prompt data transfer within the network. CHEP Focus employs leading-edge technologies such as barcode scanning and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) using the mobile device’s built-in camera and has the ability to capture geospatial data on the position of ULDs via location-based services.
