Freight forwarder GEODIS has entered into a five-year deal with unit load device supplier Unilode Aviation Solutions who will provide the full range of ULD management solutions.
The agreement includes procurement, planning, logistics, repair and digitalisation by Unilode with its network of repair centres covering GEODIS’ destinations in the Netherlands, the UK, the US, and Hong Kong.
Stanislas Brun, senior vice president, global air freight at GEODIS, said Unilode’s ULD management services proved to be the most convenient and appropriate solution for its ‘startup airline activities’
The forwarder recently leased its own A330-300 converted freighter to overcome the capacity shortages. This air freight charter flies to AMS, ORD, STN and HKG.
