Lithium batteries - the industry's inbuilt fire hazard

Lithium batteries - the industry's inbuilt fire hazard

Over recent years, the air cargo industry has seen a huge increase in shipments of lithium-based batteries across the globe. The popularity of these compact batteries has understandably exploded. They contain an impressive amount of energy relative to their size. The raw materials are affordably priced and readily available. It is no surprise that lithium batteries are so popular among producers and users of renewable energy, mobile devices and electronic consumer products. They are everywhere. But; they also present a serious fire risk which is of great concern, particularly for the aviation industry.

Presenting the new Nordisk Lite AKH

Presenting the new Nordisk Lite AKH

Nordisk launches its 3rd generation lightweight AKH container. The new Nordisk Lite AKH is a robust ULD design incorporating the same stringent standards as all Nordisk ULDs, but offering an additional 5 kg weight saving compared to its predecessors. In addition, focus had been on creating a smooth internal finish with few protruding parts, making the new AKH container perfect for vulnerable/fragile cargos. AKH containers can be used on all narrow body Airbus aircraft A319, A320 and A321 with a cargo loading system (CLS) installed.

Will ULDs ever earn the respect they deserve?

Will ULDs ever earn the respect they deserve?

We are all too familiar with the way ULDs are treated, or should we say mistreated, and we all have pictures, like this one, of yet another victim of a “mishandling moment”. Around USD 500 million is spent annually on repair of ULDs and the aircraft that carry them, and this is before we consider indirect costs such as flight delays. It is sad to say, but the main focus seems to be on finding someone else to pay for the damage, rather than preventing it in the first place. ULD owners chase ever cheaper repair charges and lower spare parts costs, and operating parties, such as cargo terminals, claim it was never their fault in the first place. With such an approach to the problem, what chance is there of any real change?
