Efficiency in Air Transport
"Unit Load Devices" is the term used to describe the full range of air cargo loading equipment used to group shipments together (unitization): containers, aircraft pallets (with nets or igloo-like structures) and specialized containers (e.g. horse stalls). Unit Load Devices, or ULDs for short, offer air cargo shippers major advantages when it comes to efficiently grouping, assembling, moving, disassembling and redistributing packages with a wide variety of shapes. Of course, shippers, agents are aware that carrying air cargo from A to B involves more than just picking up a parcel and delivering it elsewhere. Efficiency in air transport is greatly improved through the appropriate use of ULDs. Benefits include easier handling of shipments on arrival, in close cooperation with consignees.
