Menzies Aviation is the latest company to sign up to ULD Care’s Code of Conduct, promoting safe and efficient handling of unit load devices (ULDs).
The code of conduct was established in 2018 and derived from the IATA ULD Regulations. It sets the standard for ULD handling and operations, ensuring the industry has clear instructions and guidance for safe operations.
The code lays out 10 steps, including: Responsible handling, in-flight safety, damage-free handling and storage, safe transport, serviceability, stability, reporting, due skill and proper training.
Robert Fordree, executive vice president of cargo at Menzies Aviation says: “We are delighted to support the ULD CARE, Code of Conduct. As an aviation service provider we recognise the importance of the ULD in the supply chain and its role in aircraft safety.
“We also acknowledge the key role we have to play in looking after this equipment on behalf of our customers,” he adds.
Urs Weisendanger, president of ULD Care comments: “ULD Care is very pleased to welcome Menzies Aviation, an industry giant and global leader in aviation freight as the latest signatory to our Code of Conduct, which shows just how important cargo safety is to everyone in the aviation industry.”
