Swiss pharma supply chain technology company, SkyCell, has been chosen by Air France KLM Martinair Cargo to provide and enhance its ULD tracking and visibility. As the airline group’s preferred unit load device (ULD) tracking partner, SkyCell will deploy its state of the art, built for purpose IoTs across Air France KLM Martinair Cargo’s ULD fleet, thus enabling real-time visibility into its ULD operations. That visibility is shown on the software company’s SkyMind platform. Thanks to the deployment of innovative readers and tags combined with state-of-the-art technology, SkyMind is able to illustrate what is happening with the ULDs and where they are along the journey. This information enables Air France KLM Martinair Cargo to proactively tackle and irregularities and work more efficiently that it has been able to in the past, when tracking and tracing was a much more manual and complex process. Efficient processes naturally also mean significant operational and cost efficiencies, and hence greater customer satisfaction overall.

Adriaan den Heijer, EVP Air France-KLM Cargo and Managing Director Martinair, explained: “We’ve decided to invest in the latest asset tracking technology with SkyCell. A new technology solution called SkyMind has been developed. Implementing state-of-the-art tracking devices to locate our ULDs will not only enable us to track our assets but will also significantly enhance our operational quality. Real-time ULD tracking will enable us to address the issue of ULD losses, whether by ground handling partners or our valued customers, and will ensure seamless movement of cargo. With improved ULD management, we can optimize our operations and deliver exceptional service to our air cargo industry partners.”

Nico Ros, CTO and Co-Founder SkyCell, announced: “We’re excited about our partnership with Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, as we establish a new standard in technology for Air Cargo’s ULD (Unit Load Device) management. This achievement is made possible through our close cooperation with Air France KLM Martinair Cargo and the integration of SkyMind, our IoT-driven visibility platform with specialized ULD management. The partnership marks a major transformation in the airline industry towards automation, with a strong focus on efficient ULD management, streamlined dispositioning and improved asset utilization.”
