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

The announcement was made by ULD CARE at its 2018 annual conference for members of the assocaition.

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

The Code of Conduct to which Wiesendanger refers comprises ten guiding principles for optimal handling of ULDs and was launched at its 2017 annual conference.

“The Strap App offers users guidance on how to properly secure non-ULD cargo within an aircraft, such as vehicles and equipment,” commented Bob Rogers, Vice-President of the association, who lead the development of the tools. “The Wind Speed calculator allows users to determine whether or not a ULD is at risk of being blown off the ramp during loading and unloading.”

The Strap App is available in the App store, with an Android version coming soon. The Wind Speed Calculator is available on ULD CARE’s website: www.uldcare.com/container-wind-tipping-risk-calculator/ .
