Unit Load Device (ULD)

A Unit Load Device (ULD) is an essential component in the airfreight industry, serving as a pallet or container used to load luggage, freight, and mail onto aircraft. These ULDs are designed to fit precisely into specific aircraft models, ensuring optimal space utilization and cargo security during transportation. Made from lightweight materials like aluminum or a combination of fiberglass and aluminum, ULDs play a pivotal role in reducing the overall weight of the aircraft, thereby enhancing fuel efficiency. They are equipped with specialized locking mechanisms to secure them in place within the cargo hold, preventing potential shifts during flight. By standardizing the shape and size of cargo, ULDs streamline the loading and unloading processes, ultimately improving the efficiency and safety of airfreight operations.

Unit Load Device (ULD) size and dimensions


  • LD3 Containers: These are one of the most common ULDs used, especially on wide-body aircraft. They have a contoured shape that matches the fuselage’s curve. Typically, their dimensions are around 60.4 inches in height, 61.5 inches in width, and 125.75 inches in length.
  • LD2 Containers: Smaller than LD3, LD2 containers are designed specifically for narrow-body aircraft. They measure approximately 64 inches in height, 60.4 inches in width, and 61.5 inches in length.
  • LD1 Containers: Designed for wide-body aircraft, LD1 containers are similar in size to LD3 but have a different contour to fit aircraft like the Boeing 777. Their typical dimensions are 79 inches in height, 60.4 inches in width, and 125.75 inches in length.
  • LD7 Pallets: These are flat pallets that can carry a net load of up to 10,000 lbs. They come in various sizes, with the most common being 88 inches x 125 inches and 96 inches x 125 inches.
  • LD11 Containers: These ULDs are designed for specific aircraft models like the Airbus A330. They are rectangular and measure around 79 inches in height, 88 inches in width, and 125 inches in length.
  • M1 Standard Pallet: Measuring 112 inches x 88 inches, this pallet is used in a variety of aircraft and is known for its versatility.
  • Horse Stables: These specialized ULDs are designed for transporting live animals, especially horses. They are larger and more robust, with dimensions varying based on the specific requirements of the animals they are designed to transport.

It’s worth noting that while these are some of the standard sizes, ULDs can come in many other shapes and sizes, tailored for specific cargo needs and aircraft models. Each ULD also has a unique identification code that indicates its size and type, aiding in quick recognition and handling during airfreight operations.

What is the difference between air freight and air cargo?

What factors influence air freight prices?

Air freight prices are determined by a variety of factors, each contributing to the overall cost. At EDS, we value transparency, hence we want you to understand what exactly influences the pricing of our air freight services:

  1. Weight and volume of the shipment: The weight and size of your cargo are primary determinants of air freight costs. Airlines often charge based on the ‘volumetric weight’ of the shipment, which is calculated using the dimensions of the air freight container.
  2. Nature of the goods: Certain types of goods, such as hazardous materials, perishables, or high-value items, may require special handling or additional documentation. This could influence the cost of shipping.
  3. Speed and urgency: If your shipment is urgent, it may need to be sent on the next available flight, which can increase the cost. On the other hand, non-urgent shipments can be consolidated with other cargo, resulting in lower prices.
  4. Origin and destination: The distance between the pickup and delivery location also affects the cost. Further distances or shipping to remote locations typically increase the price.
  5. Customs and duties: Depending on the nature of the goods and the countries involved, there may be customs charges or duties that need to be paid. These costs are usually borne by the receiver, but they can affect the total cost of air freight.
