About the course

Personnel directly involved in Unit Load Device (ULD) operations are required to train regularly on functions relevant to their job tasks and responsibilities.

ULDs are essential for loading freight transported by air. Although ULDs are required to ensure the safe and reliable restraint of cargo during a flight, the standards for using them vary widely across the industry. The IATA ULD Regulations (ULDR) provides a simple point of reference for common technical and operational standards, regulatory requirements, and carrier requirements applicable to overall ULD operations.

Note: This course meets the training requirements as per the ULD Regulations Table 1.6.A


This course is available at IATA Training Centers and Regional Training Partner locations, and on-demand as in-house training.
