Position your empty containers where you need them most
Designed to address the global imbalance in ULD stocks and to help ULD fleet managers optimise the efficiency of their fleets, our collapsible AAY ULD is the first of its kind to be certified by a civil aviation authority.
This unique, main-deck AAY ULD can be set up and folded down in seconds, yet it has the same capacity as a standard AAY. When collapsed, it can be stacked, shipped and stored in the most space-efficient way possible.

No need to reposition empty containers or find additional storage space? Check out our standard AAY. It fits perfectly the main deck of many narrow body freighter aircraft such as the Airbus 320F and 321F.
It is quick and safe to fold the collapsible AAY. All you have to do is release the stud fittings and locks, then fold the panels inwards, making sure the cover and straps are tucked in neatly. Watch this instruction video to see how easy it is.
It takes just two minutes and two people to fold it down or put it back up.
The internal volume is the same in both versions, so the collapsible AAY can carry the same amount of cargo as the standard AAY.
The collapsible AAY is just as sturdy and long-lasting as the standard AAY. The panels are made of tough aluminium, and plastic protection strips prevent damage once it is stacked.
When folded, the collapsible AAY can be stacked up to four high on the main deck of an A320, B757 and B737, up to six high on the lower deck of a B747, and up to eight high in a regular 40ft shipping container.
The cover of the collapsible AAY is completely watertight to protect your cargo from the rain. The pallet base has drain holes to remove any surface water.
