The first online platform for the global exchange of unit load devices has been newly designed and equipped with additional tools.

Skypooling’s entirely reworked version 2.0 was introduced at the ULD Care Annual Conference in Montreal, which took place over September 17-19 2019.

This facility enables users of currently more than 50 airlines to quickly share containers and pallets used for airfreight and baggage to solve over or understock situations. The sharing principle, which is transferred to ULDs, allows better use of available ULD and aircraft capacities, avoiding "deadhead" moves and storage of empty ULDs. The entirely reworked surface is structured in a more user-friendly way and therefore simplifies the usage.

Apart from its new look, skypooling 2.0 boasts interesting new features. One of those is an auto-matching function, which automatically matches airlines with similar over- and understock, thus saving time for manual searches. In addition, the communication area in the system has been expanded so that, in addition to enquiries and co-ordination, bookings can also be made directly on the platform. As part of the comprehensive update, all functions are now also available mobile via smartphone or tablet.
