Unilode and Cathay Pacific complete Bluetooth tracking trials

Unilode Aviation Solutions has successfully completed Bluetooth tracking trials with Cathay Pacific providing end-to-end visibility for cargo shipments between Hong Kong and Melbourne.

The project team consisting of Cathay Pacific, OnAsset, Nexiot and Unilode was able to deliver flawless data capture for all relevant supply chain events into the airline’s cargo management systems.

The trial included the world’s first deployment of Bluetooth Low Energy version 5 technology with superior performance and range over any other Bluetooth deployment, and also featuring another world-first with data capture being conducted with a mix of fixed readers and mobile devices.

The trials of ULD track and trace will continue and Unilode says it will be making further announcements on its rollout schedule for the digital enablement of its ULD fleet “in the very near future”.
