04 / 11 / 2019
Menzies Aviation has teamed up with the trade association ULD CARE to deliver new training materials about cargo build-up, which is critical to the safe and reliable operation of ULDs during flight, as well as the protection of customer equipment.
The release of the new training materials follows Menzies Aviation’s signing of the ULD CARE Code of Conduct, the industry’s benchmark for safe and efficient operation of ULDs during flight. The ULD Care Code of Conduct was established in 2018 and is derived from IATA’s ULD Regulations.
Mervyn Walker, chief operating officer, Menzies Aviation commented: “We are grateful to the support we have received from ULD CARE in completely refreshing our cargo build-up training materials. We hope this new training programme will support our staff in the safe and efficient handling of ULDs.
“We look forward to continuing to work with ULD CARE on the promotion of proper ULD handling.”
Bob Rogers, vice president and treasurer of ULD CARE, said: “ULD CARE is very pleased to assist Menzies Aviation in their training initiatives.
“Given that cargo build up activities remain highly labour intensive, and given the widely acknowledged high staff turnover in the air cargo and ground handling industry, training is an essential cornerstone of delivering cargo in a safe to fly condition.”
