Unilode opens new ULD unit in China

Published: Thursday, June 6, 2019

Unilode Aviation Solutions has opened a new unit load device (ULD) and galley cart repair center in Hong Kong.

The repair center has an area of around 3,000 sq m and will employ up to 30 repair technicians, who will carry out ULD repairs, ULD assembly, pallet net repair and inflight equipment maintenance and repair services.

The facility will also be used as a storage centre for Unilode’s newly launched ULD leasing solutions as a logistics, storage and repair centre for Envirotainer.

Certificates from the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency are expected to be received in the coming weeks.

Benoît Dumont, CEO of Unilode says that as the largest cargo airport in the world, it made sense for Unilode to establish a repair centre in Hong Kong.

He says: “This new location will allow us to strengthen our partnership with Envirotainer, the global leader in cool containers, and expand the storage network for Unilode’s new short- and medium-term ULD leasing services. Our customer base will continue to expand in the Asia Pacific region and we look forward to adding further locations to our network.”
