Ultralite® AKE

Ultralite® AKE

The Nordisk Ultralite® AKE container provides the highest strength-to-weight performance compared to any AKE on the market today. Nordisk's proven lightweight design combined with high quality materials allows a weight reduction of 15 kg to 40 kg per ULD or between 300-600 kg per loaded aircraft.

Don't waste money on heavy containers 
Nordisk Ultralite® is the world's lightest AKE. While carrying the same cargo volume, it will save you at least 25% weight compared to traditional aluminium containers.

Savings on fuel and/or increased payload, low maintenance costs, less damage to bags and aircraft and fewer injuries to loaders, all make the Nordisk Ultralite® an excellent investment.

Contact us for more information or help to run your own weight saving calculations.

Best lifecycle value: 
The Nordisk Ultralite® offers several important benefits. High strength light-weight aluminium frame in 7000-series alloy ensures durability and easy repair and maintenance. The Ultralite's aramid fibres can be recycled and damaged panels leave no sharp edges hence are safe for bags and baggage handlers. Its exceptional low weight saves customers thousands of dollars over its life cycle.
