AirBridgeCargo Airlines, one of the fastest growing carriers in the world, and Unilode Aviation Solutions, the leading global provider of outsourced Unit Load Device (ULD) management and repair solutions, have extended their ULD management agreement until mid-2023.
AirBridgeCargo is one of its largest customers, operating a fleet of 18 Boeing 747 freighters with over 10,000 ULDs, which are being supplied from Unilode’s global fleet of circa 120,000 ULDs. They have supported AirBridgeCargo’s growth with ULD management solutions since 2004 and their mutually beneficial partnership has now been extended for another 5-year term.
Sergey Lazarev, AirBridgeCargo General Director, said: “During our tender process we have looked at a number of options offered by ULD management providers and after in-depth review chose Unilode as a supplier that will serve our needs in the best possible way. AirBridgeCargo is pleased to continue its long-term partnership with Unilode that has developed an intimate understanding of our requirements during our 14 years of cooperation and has continuously invested in its ULD fleet to support our airline’s growth since the beginning of our operations. We are confident that Unilode is the right partner for AirBridgeCargo and look forward to our continued partnership.”
Benoît Dumont, Unilode CEO, said: “AirBridgeCargo is one of the top ten international cargo airlines and we are proud that our long-term partnership with our loyal customer has been extended which proves the value that Unilode’s ULD management solutions add to airlines’ operations. We are committed to expand our ULD repair and management network, and invest in relevant technology, equipment and digitalisation including ULD tracking solutions to help AirBridgeCargo achieve its ambitious growth plans and continue to deliver excellent service to its customers.”
