On this page you will find the most popular air freight containers and pallets, otherwise known as Unit Load Devices (ULDs). Using standardised ULDs makes it possible to pack in large quantities of goods. It also saves time and labour costs during loading.
ULD pallets and ULD containers are made from sheet aluminium and profiles/profile frames. Their standardised construction means that, for example, aircraft cargo nets snap straight into place and heavy pieces of cargo can be secured without any problems.
The different containers and pallets each have their own IATA code which uniquely identifies them. Air freight pallets and containers are designed to be suitable for different types of aircraft and this must be taken into consideration when choosing ULDs. For this reason, the compatible types of aircraft are also given on the list.
