AirBridgeCargo Airlines and Unilode Aviation Solutions have deepened their long-standing ULD management partnership.

The pair have overseen the roll-out of the world's first digitised main deck containers, which are co-branded dedicated AMA/AMD fire-resistant containers and which are equipped with a transmitting portable electronic device.

The containers, which are manufactured by Nordisk Aviation Products, have been designed with the usage of the latest technology in fire barriers for aviation and are equipped with TPEDs based on Unilode's award-winning Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 5.0) technology. The containers enable the ULD to be tracked and the cargo being carried in the container, and transmit status updates on various parameters such as temperature, humidity, shock and light. The first half of the new digitised AMA/AMD fire-resistant container fleet will be delivered by Unilode by the end of June and the rest in September to give AirBridgeCargo Airlines time to test and introduce them gradually into its operations.
