AAR’s Nordisk to provide fuel-saving ULDs to China Southern

Lightweight ULDs to reduce emissions while providing "safe and reliable" cargo transport


AAR’s Nordisk Aviation Products said that it has received orders for more than 1,100 lightweight air cargo containers and pallets from China Southern Airlines. Nordisk’s Unit Load Devices (ULDs) will provide the airline fuel savings of more than 1,100 tons of fuel a year, reducing carbon emissions by more than 3,500 tons. The containers and pallets will be manufactured at Nordisk’s facility in Kunshan, China, for shorter delivery lead times to the customer.

“We are pleased to provide China Southern Airlines with fuel-efficient, lightweight containers and pallets that, in addition to protecting the environment, help to enhance the safe and reliable transport of passenger cargo,” said Boon Yang Sim, Nordisk’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Asia Pacific and People’s Republic of China.
