According to IATA every year, the total cost of both repair and loss of ULDs is estimated at being more than $300 million, excluding flight delays and cancelations due to their unavailability.
Although ULDs are required to ensure the safe and reliable restraint of cargo, baggage and mail during a flight, the standards for using them vary widely across the industry.
The right ULD must be available in the right place at the right time in the right condition. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
Just like any other aircraft component, ULDs are regulated to ensure flight safety under all circumstances. These rules are defined by governing bodies such as ICAO and IATA and put into national legislation by each Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
