Start-up cargo airline My Freighter has announced its partnership with Unilode Aviation Solutions for ULD management services.


The Uzbekistan-based freight carrier operates scheduled and charter cargo flights between Asia and Europe whilst offering passenger flights under the Centrum Air brand.


Unilode said it will initially provide 600 digitised pallets from its ULD pool, with an expectation for significant growth over the next five years.


My Freighter's growth plan includes the acquisition of five additional Boeing 747-200F, with the aim of expanding its fleet to 20 aircraft as part of its five-year strategy.


"We are excited to partner with Unilode for ULD management services that will cover our ULD supply, maintenance, repair, tracking and monitoring needs. Unilode's extensive industry experience, state-of-the-art technology solutions and commitment to operational excellence align perfectly with our goals of providing superior cargo services to our valued customers," said Abdulaziz Abdurakhmanov, general director at My Freighter.


"This partnership will strengthen our air cargo capabilities and support our strategic growth plans. We are looking forward to significant growth together with Unilode during our initial five-year contract term."


Ross Marino, chief executive officer at Unilode, also welcomed the partnership.


"We are delighted to have secured My Freighter as a valued customer. Start-up carriers with ambitious growth plans are a welcome addition to our ULD management portfolio, and we are glad to play an important role in enabling their expansion and success in the air cargo industry," Marino said.


"Unilode's full-service ULD management solutions will provide a scalable foundation for My Freighter and will accommodate their increasing operational requirements that will facilitate their growth," the Unilode chief added.
