Air Cargo Containers / ULD Containers
Air Cargo Containers, or more technically known as ULD Containers or as a Unit Load Device, is a regulated pallet or container that is used to load passenger freight, cargo, parcels, mail and more on wide-body aircraft and specific models of narrow-body aircraft. The use of ULD Containers allows for larger volums of cargo to be bundled into a single unit. Since this reduces the potential number of units to load, it aides in increasing operations efficiencies in busy operations such as freight terminals, airports, tarmacs and more! The increased operations efficiencies assist in preventing flight delays, speeding up air worthiness checks and saves ground crews precious time.
Since the inception of Granger Plastics, the rotomolding company has been heavily involved in a wide number of aspects of the aerospace industry, including producing over 10,000 custom air cargo containers for a major international parcel delivery carrier, who insists that the Granger Unit Load Devices provide them the lowest total cost of ownership amongst comparable ULD containers. This proven history pushed Granger Industries into launching Granger Aerospace Products. Granger Aerospace now offers lines of LD 2, LD 3 and LD 8 ULD Containers. The LD 2 and LD 8 Air Cargo Containers are built to AS 1677 NAS Specifications, while the LD 3 ULDs are built to the FAA’s TSO C90d certification.
