ULD CARE launches tools to improve ULD safety


ULD CARE has launched two new tools, the Strap App and Wind Speed Calculator to help ULD operators improve safety and reduce damage.

The Strap App is available in the iTunes store with an Android version coming soon, with the Wind Speed Calculator being available on ULD CARE’s website.

ULD CARE president, Urs Wiesendanger says: “These two new tools build on our commitment to helping the air cargo industry and align with the principles of our Code of Conduct. We will be adding these to our list of solutions and promoting them widely to the industry.”

The association’s vice president, Bob Rogers says: “The Strap App offers users guidance on how to properly secure non-ULD cargo within an aircraft, such as vehicles and equipment.

“The Wind Speed calculator allows users to determine whether or not a ULD is at risk of being blow off the ramp during loading and unloading.”
