Swissport is to work with Unilode and Descartes to track and monitor unit load devices using Bluetooth technology at its cargo warehouses.

During 2020, Swissport will rig 115 cargo warehouses with Bluetooth readers supplied by Unilode and Descartes. The technology will increase transparency for Swissport customers, using digitally tagged ULD. Geolocation of ULD enables real-time tracking and inventory control, enabling airlines and freight companies to plan the distribution of their vast ULD fleets more efficiently and cost effectively.

“Our co-operation with Unilode and Descartes and the introduction of global ULD tracking at our cargo warehouses create added value for our customers and drive the digital transformation of the cargo supply chain and the industry," commented Hendrik Leyssens, Swissport’s Vice President Global Operations - Cargo.
