A broad range of factors must be observed, such as maximum load of the ULD, the running (linear) load limitation and the area load limitation. These factors ultimately depend on the type of aircraft, type and condition of ULD, planned loading position onboard the aircraft, the contour of the ULD, the restraint system and the load securing and many more
The loading,unloading and handling of ULD’s must conform to the requirements of the IATA ULD Regu- lations (ULDR), the IATA Airport Handling Manual (AHM), the ULD-related provisions in the IATA IOSA audit standards (applicable to air carriers) and the IATA ISAGO audit standards (applicable to Ground Service Providers) standards as well as the possibly further going requirements of the individual operators.
For EC - based air carriers, forwarders and shippers, such ULD Training must conform to the ULD-related provisions within the EASA OPS as well. In addition, US - based air carriers will require ULD training specifically in conformance with the US FAR (Federal Aviation Regulations).
LOGAR offers three differently structured types of ULD - related training:
The training aims at shipper’s who build their own Unit Load Devices for air transport, expressly excluding dangerous goods*. The duration is three days (24 hours, consisting of eight hours theoretical basic knowledge and sixteen hours of practical exercises in a warehousing environment**).
The following topics are covered:
The training aims at forwarder’s and ground service providers who build either own Unit Load Devices for air transport or do so on behalf of a customer (e.g., a shipper), expressly excluding dangerous goods*. The duration is three days (24 hours, consisting of eight hours theoretical basic knowledge and sixteen hours of practical exercises in a warehousing environment**).
The following topics are covered:
The training aims at military forces and their service providers who build either own Unit Load Devices for air transport or do so on behalf of a customer (e.g., a military shipper), at the customer’s choice either including or excluding dangerous goods.

This web-based training for handlers and users of ULD's meets the training requirements as stipulated by subchapter 1.6 of the IATA ULD Regulations, meets the requirements of personnel employed by both airlines and ground handling providers as well as forwarders or shippers involved in the buildup of ULD's and is available upon demand in English and German language at the choice of the customer.
* An additional module for the buildup of ULD's containing dangerous goods expressly permitted under the scope of
subparagraph 188.8.131.52 of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations may be added on customer demand. The full scope of
Dangerous Goods loading for ULD's (including Class1, explosives and Class 7, radioactive substances) is offered by
LOGAR only to customers from the airline business and ground handling service providers upon demand.
* * The ULD buildup training are typically delivered only in the form of inhouse training at locations chosen by the customer.
The presence of the required equipment and supplies is, of course, a mandatory prerequisite for this training; LOGAR
will evaluate these prerequisites before entertaining any request for such training. The course language is German or English at the
choice of the customer.
