AFKLMP Cargo and Kuehne+Nagel track ULDs

Since the start of 2024, Air France KLM Martinair Cargo has been working with SkyCell technology and the corresponding SkyMind platform to keep track of its ULD fleet. SkyCell’s advanced Internet of Things technology enables real-time visibility of its ULD operations. Originally designed to enhance pharma transportation, the technology makes use of sophisticated tags and readers to deliver accurate, real-time data, giving the airlines vastly improved control and efficiency in its logistics operations. The sooner discrepancies or changes are detected, the quicker the airline can proactively take measures to counteract any deviations.

Kuehne+Nagel has now joined in on the real-time ULD tracking move and chosen to support the process at its warehouse facility and Frankfurt/Main Airport (FRA). It installed gateway readers there on 06MAY24, enabling live tracking of SkyMind AFKLMP Cargo ULD devices. This is a first and significant improvement measure. The press release refers to it as “a significant step forward in the air cargo industry, revolutionizing ULD tracking and setting new standards for operational efficiency and customer service.”

Holger Ketz, Global Head of Air Logistics Network & Carrier Management at Kuehne+Nagel, explained: “Kuehne+Nagel’s installation of gateway readers at our Frankfurt facility showcases our dedication to embracing innovation and enhancing our services with the needs of our customers in mind. We are pleased to support Air France KLM Martinair Cargo as the first customer to utilize this highly innovative method of tracking ULDs, further reinforcing our position as an industry leader.

Andy Newbold, Global Key Account Director at Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, said: “With SkyMind, Air France KLM Martinair Cargo will gain complete control over its ULD operations — mitigating the extensive manual efforts historically associated with ULD tracing and tracking, leading to substantial time and cost savings, as well as boosting operational efficiency. We are proud of this important step made by Kuehne+Nagel, showcasing their commitment to pioneering innovative solutions that ultimately benefit our mutual customers.”
