Turkish Cargo has signed a three-year contract with Unilode Aviation Solutions for the maintenance and repair of its ULD fleet.

Unilode will repair Turkish Cargo’s standard and heavy-duty pallets, pallet nets, cargo and special containers at 22 locations in Unilode’s EASA and FAA-certified repair network in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas, complementing Turkish’s in-house repairs in Istanbul.

Vural Ursavas, Senior Vice President Cargo Operations at Turkish Airlines says: “Working with Unilode at multiple locations will be ensuring consistent quality and repair compliance across our network, and we look forward to carrying out constructive partnership for an improved performance and efficiency.”

Marc Groenewegen, Chief Commercial Officer and Managing Director MRO Solutions at Unilode says: “Turkish Cargo’s worldwide destinations overlap with several repair stations owned and operated by Unilode that makes it possible to repair ULDs where the damage occurs to significantly reduce ULD repositioning needs, fuel burn and CO2 emissions.”
