Unit Load Device (ULD) Operations

Effective January 1, 2014, operational personnel directly involved in ULD operations will be required to train regularly on topics relevant to their job tasks and responsibilities. This comprehensive course covers all operational topics required for category 3 staff.

ULDs are essential for loading freight transported by air. Although ULDs are required to ensure the safe and reliable restraint of cargo during a flight, the standards for using them vary widely across the industry. The IATA ULD Regulations (ULDR) provides a simple point of reference for common technical and operational standards, regulatory requirements, and carrier requirements applicable to overall ULD operations.
