Collapsible air cargo container gains approval
25 / 02 / 2023
ULD firm VRR’s collapsible air cargo container has been certified for use by the European Union Aviation Saftey Agency.
The collapsible AAX has the same shape capacity and durability as the standard AAX and was designed in response to the world’s imbalance in ULDs by allowing carriers to transport more empty containers on a return flight.
The makers also hope it will help companies looking to reduce their carbon emissions.
The container can fold and stack up to three high on a maindeck and up to four high on a lower deck.
Ben Lakerveld, sales manager of VRR, said: “The AAXc can cut the space that empty containers take up on a main deck by two-thirds.
“If you’re a ULD manager looking to significantly reduce your carbon footprint, this is the solution. Now you can fly three or four empty containers for the price of one, create more space for full containers, and hit your emissions target.”
The company said that collapsing the container takes just two people, one minute and no tools to erect or collapse and the moving parts are “simple to maintain and replace”.
