Skycooler signs 10-year repair and digitalisation agreement with Unilode


Skycooler, a specialist in the leasing of temperature-controlled airline containers for catering operations, has entered into a 10-year repair, maintenance and digitalisation agreement with Unilode Aviation Solutions, the market leader in outsourced unit load device (ULD) management, repair and digital services.

Skycooler’s temperature-controlled containers will be repaired at Unilode’s EASA and FAA-certified repair stations, initially in the United Kingdom, and further locations will be added to meet the needs of Skycooler’s growing network. Unilode will also equip Skycooler’s containers with digital tags for increased supply chain visibility.  

Jorgen Veslov, Chief Executive Officer, Skycooler, said: “Skycooler has specialised in the transportation of fresh, chilled and frozen food products to the inflight catering market since 2005. Long-term planning capabilities, reliability and availability of containers are key success factors in our business as our temperature-controlled container leasing operations are integrated within our customers’ supply chain management.

Our repair agreement with Unilode will allow us to guarantee quick turnaround times of three to seven business days to our customers. Additionally, Unilode’s digital container tags, reader network and customer dashboard will provide Skycooler with real-time fleet visibility. Unilode will ensure consistent repair quality, compliance and transparency, and we look forward to our long-term partnership.”      

Marc Groenewegen, Chief Commercial Officer and Managing Director MRO Solutions, Unilode Aviation Solutions, said: “We are pleased to be partnering with Skycooler that is an important player in a niche market with very promising growth opportunities. Our new 10-year agreement includes both our repair and digital services as Skycooler has recognised the benefits that Unilode’s digital ULD tags with geolocation and various sensor capabilities can provide for its temperature-controlled container fleet.

This reflects and confirms the aviation market’s acceptance of Unilode’s digital technology and proves the versatility of our digital solutions that can be used for standard and special ULDs, such as temperature-controlled containers. We look forward to facilitating Skycooler’s growth with Unilode’s repair and digital solutions.”
