ULD CARE is delighted to endorse the recently announced initiative by IATA to introduce a ULD Safety Campaign. Launched during the recent IATA World Cargo Symposium (WCS), this campaign is intended to drive greater awareness of ULD using the tag line “ULD it’s not just a box…”
The IATA ULD Safety Campaign provides an additional level of support to the air cargo industry in the ever important area of ULD handling. More details are available on the IATA website including downloadable poster artworks and a YouTube video.
ULD CARE fully endorses this initiative and will be doing all possible to support its widespread use.
ULD have been an ever present part of air cargo for over 40 years, enabling enormous changes in the air cargo business model. However the primary purpose of ULD as a piece of aircraft equipment delivering restraint to the cargo during flight has become somewhat overlooked along the way. To a large extent, ULD are considered as nothing more than material handling equipment to facilitate the movement of cargo.
As a not-for-profit organization focusing exclusively on ULD issues, ULD CARE is confident that this new initiative, building on related IATA and ULD CARE activities such as the IATA ULD Regulations and the ULD CARE video SOS ULD, will lead to greater understanding of the flight safety nature of ULD throughout the industry.
ULD CARE is currently working on a number of projects which we believe will further facilitate the adoption of best practices throughout ULD operations and handling.
ULD CARE invites the industry at large to make good use of its website: www.uldcare.com. Join the ULD conversation and become a member if you wish to participate in the 2016 Annual Conference being held this year from August 29 to September 1 in Los Angeles.
