DHL has asked VRR to design and manufacture new AMV containers for the A300-600(C)F aircraft. The global carrier is keen to increase the efficiency of the aircraft’s cargo hold, and the AMV container is the ideal ULD.
With a base size of 96x125 inch and a height of 96 inch, taking up just half the width of the main deck, its curved structure and the fact that it can be loaded side-by-side ensure that cargo space is maximised.
Wooden mock-up to check the fit
During the design phase, we had to be absolutely sure the container would fit every position in the hold of the A300-600F (Freighter) and the A300-600CF (Conversion Freighter). So we made a wooden mock-up and tested both aircraft at the DHL hub in Leipzig. The test was a great success. The next stage is to fully engineer and manufacture the container according to DHL specifications.
