Unit Load Device (ULD)

A ULD (Unit Load Device) is a special device that is used in air transportation to load cargo, baggage, and mail. The ULC comes in two forms: pallets and containers. 

Unit Load Devices (ULD) used as containers carried in the holds of suitably dimensioned and equipped aircraft for baggage and cargo, are secured so that they cannot move within the hold in flight.
