ULDs are essential to air transportation business
According to IATA every year, the total cost of both repair and loss of ULDs is estimated about $300 million, excluding flight delays and cancelations due to their unavailability.
Just like any other aircraft component, ULDs are regulated to ensure flight safety under all circumstances. These rules are defined by the governing bodies like ICAO and IATA and put into national legislation by each Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
The IATA have developed new ULD Regulations (ULDR) for standards and procedures concerning the specifications, handling, restraint and maintenance of ULDs and promotes actively worldwide recognition and adoption of those standards. Part of the campaign is to promote the need for proper training.
Operational personnel involved in ULD operations require regular training on topics relevant to their job tasks and responsibilities.
