Meet our collapsible ULDs

The innovative solution for fleet efficiency and sustainable practices

Storing and relocating empty ULDs has long been a critical issue for the air cargo industry. The worldwide uld imbalance costs enormous sums of money and causes no end of inconvenience. It also undermines efforts to reduce CO2 emissions.

Our solution to this concern? To create certified air cargo containers that can be folded and stacked when empty. Now you don’t need to leave your ULDs halfway around the world because a return flight is too expensive. And you can take one step closer to zero-carbon flying.

Our certified collapsible ULDs

Reduce the size of your containers, not their capacity. Our collapsible and inflatable ULDs carry the same volume of cargo as standard containers, and they meet exactly the same air-worthiness requirements. However, when collapsed, they can be stacked in the hold, leaving substantially more floor space for your full ULDs and making a significant contribution to your sustainability goals.

Why buy a collapsible air cargo container?

Optimise fleet efficiency

Having the right container in the right place at the right time is essential for operational efficiency. It’s not just about cost. It’s also about not letting your customers down. Our collapsible containers are easy and cost-effective to relocate when empty because they’re stackable.

Sustainability goals

Environmental regulations and changing public attitudes are putting considerable pressure on the air cargo industry to reduce its carbon footprint. Using ULDs that maximise volume when full and minimise dimensions when empty supports your environmental initiatives.

Storage capacity

Finding sufficient storage space in various locations around the world is a constant frustration for ULD fleet managers, particularly when containers are empty. But with a collapsible and stackable container there’s a way to dramatically reduce the amount of valuable space your containers take up when they’re not being used.

A customer's opinion on the collapsibles

Interested in the Collapsibles but unsure it could benefit your ULD operations? If you’ve never used collapsible containers, it’s natural you want convincing. 

There is nothing more reassuring than the honest opinion of a user. So, we asked Jos Jacobson, COO of ACL Airshop, to share his experiences—and those of his customers—of the AAY Collapsible.
