Menzies Aviation signs up to ULD code of conduct

Menzies Aviation has become the latest signatory to IATA’s ULD CARE’s Code of Conduct which aims to reduce damage to air cargo containers.

Established in 2018, and derived from the IATA ULD Regulations, the ULD CARE Code of Conduct sets the standard for all ULD handling and operations, ensuring that the industry has clear instructions and guidance for their safe and efficient operation.

Its 10 steps ensure responsible handing, in-flight safety, damage-free handling and storage, safe transport, serviceability, stability, reporting, due skill, and proper training.

Robert Fordree, EVP cargo, Menzies Aviation said: “We are delighted to support the ULD CARE, Code of Conduct. As an aviation service provider we recognise the importance of the ULD in the supply chain and its role in aircraft safety. We also acknowledge the key role we have to play in looking after this equipment on behalf of our customers.”

President of ULD CARE Urs Weisendanger said: “ULD Care is very pleased to welcome Menzies Aviation, an industry giant and global leader in aviation freight as the latest signatory to our Code of Conduct, which shows just how important cargo safety is to everyone in the aviation industry.”
