Unilode Aviation Solutions, the market leader in outsourced unit load device (ULD) management, repair and digital services, is proud to announce the extension of its ULD management partnership with Saudia Cargo until 2028.

Teddy Zebitz, Chief Executive Officer Saudia Cargo, said: “We are pleased to renew our full-service ULD management partnership with Unilode Aviation Solutions as it has delivered significant benefits to our operations over the past five years and enabled us to enhance the services we provide to our passengers and cargo customers. Unilode’s digital ULD management solutions enable us to gain more insights and greater visibility throughout our network and supply chain and continue to help us provide innovative and state-of-the-art solutions to our customers. Unilode and Saudia Cargo have been working closely to enhance digitisation in industry practices, reflecting positively on our ESG policy. With Unilode’s innovative, greener solutions, we look forward to working together towards a more sustainable future. In addition, Unilode’s global and local customer success management teams and worldwide repair network contribute to our successful and mutually beneficial partnership. We look forward to working together for another five-year term.

Saudia Cargo has access to a fleet of 90 passenger and cargo wide-body aircraft and flies to 87 destinations. The passenger and cargo divisions awarded the supply and management of their 21,000-strong container and pallet fleet to Unilode in 2017, creating one of the industry’s largest ULD management partnerships. Over the past five years, Unilode has transitioned Saudia Cargo to new, 20 kg lighter solid door containers, which have enabled significant fuel and carbon emission savings. The new agreement will also see Unilode replace the standard AKE containers with lightweight units from its ULD pool for additional synergy and sustainability benefits.

Ross Marino, Chief Executive Officer, Unilode, said: “We are absolutely delighted and very proud that Saudia Cargo has decided to continue partnering with Unilode for the supply, management, repair and digitalisation of their ULD fleet. They are strategic customers in our portfolio, and their continued trust in our people and services demonstrates the value that they place on our partnership and collaboration. Our renewed agreement is based on a more dynamic price modelling that enables Saudia Cargo to only pay for the ULDs they utilise whilst giving them peace of mind about ULD availability throughout their global network. We are committed to delivering outstanding service to Saudia Cargo over the next five years of our partnership.”

Unilode will provide strategic ULD buffer stock to Saudia Cargo during the Hajj to enable hassle-free and efficient operations during the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca. In addition, Unilode’s proactive ULD management services and digital ULD solutions will continue to allow Saudia Cargo to increase the visibility of the supply chain and realise additional e-commerce revenue opportunities.
