Loading and unloading air cargo at airports

Air cargo is transported worldwide in cargo planes typically loaded with ULDs (Unit Load Device) or container and cargo pallets. Before the cargo is loaded onto the aeroplane, it needs to be sorted and loaded into a ULD, a task that includes moving air cargo between pallets and open containers. 

After unloading the aeroplane, the cargo must be unloaded from the ULD to the appropriate types of load carriers used for the next transport at the airport. This loading, unloading and sorting process is often carried out manually, causing repetitive work-related strain injuries with lower productivity and high sick absence.
