Air Canada and ULD firm Unilode Aviation Solutions have extended their ULD management agreement for another seven-year term.
The deal, which began in 2012, has also been extended to include Unilode’s digitalistion solution.
Tim Strauss, Air Canada vice president, cargo, said: “In today’s challenging cargo environment airlines need flexibility, agility and consistency, and Unilode’s ULD management solutions help us deliver service excellence to our loyal customer base.
“Digitalisation is at the heart of everything we do at Air Canada Cargo, and Unilode’s digital solution will become a seamless part of our operations and an enabler to provide innovative and value-added services to our customers.”
Benoît Dumont, Unilode chief executive, added: “Air Canada has been a supporter of Unilode’s digital solution from day one and has been very cooperative in testing the technology in the early stages of development.
“The roll-out of the digital solution throughout Air Canada’s network, as part of Unilode’s overall digitalisation program, is progressing fast, and we look forward to providing Air Canada with the benefits of a digital ULD fleet for many years to come.”
