Good news! We are proud to announce that one of our project, Smart ULD, developed for our SITA client has been awarded the second price during the 2019 IATA (International Air Transport Association) Air Cargo Innovation awards. SITA solution was chosen among 56 competitors in this contest held to promote innovation and new ideas in the field of air logistics.

Smart ULD is a project carried by SITA and developed by SICLO using the latest mobile, IoT and blockchain technologies to solve frequent issues in ULD management (Unit load Devices, containers used in aircrafts to ship merchandise). Smart ULD tracks and monitors, thanks to sensors all the ULD’s data during all the transportation process: geolocation, temperature, shock, vibration, pressure… This technology is impactful in reducing the loss or misplacement of ULDs and also moving the ULD handling from paper to digital supports.


Smart ULD uses blockchain to report all the events that happened in the supply chain. Thanks to this, every stakeholder has access to the data of the whole process. It brings efficiency, transparency on all the steps of the supply chain which is then perfectly optimized.


Congratulations to Arnaud Brolly, portfolio manager at SITA who submitted the project. We are proud of the work we accomplished together.
