The 5-year agreement means an even greater level of flexibility will be achieved in terms of ULD types, volumes and lead times, plus continuous cost, product and sustainability improvement opportunities for both partners.
AviusULD Chief Executive Officer, Klaus Hofmann, said: “I am delighted to confirm our commitment to a sustained partnership with Unilode through a long-term contract. Unilode is one of our key customers and we are looking forward to supporting them in order to meet the ever-evolving needs of the industry.
“AviusULD will continue to supply Unilode with robust, lightweight, easy-to-repair containers and pallets, aiming to minimise the total ownership cost for Unilode and their airline customers. Additionally, we stand by our commitment to world-class after-sales service, prompt delivery of spare parts, and technical support.”
Unilode Chief Executive Officer, Ross Marino, said: “Unilode and AviusULD have enjoyed a strong relationship over the years, with more than 50% of Unilode’s fleet of 160,000 ULDs being supplied by AviusULD. AviusULD’s standard aluminium containers have the right combination of weight, durability and reliability and the lowest total cost of ownership. Our renewed 5-year agreement will continue to enable us to meet our customers’ growing demand and adapt to the changing market conditions, and jointly work on further reducing our environmental footprint.”
