Answers Air Freight Page | 101 2017 Exercise 4.3 (Answer) Container Requirements and Loading Calculations Estimating Example Note: For this assignment, the max. net weight of LD7 pallet is 10,000 lb (4,536 kg) and the max. volume is 408 ft 3 (11.5 m 3 ). 1. A customer has 15 crates of auto parts and 150 cartons of brochures, total shipment volume is 803.4 ft 3 , total shipment weight is 27,000 lb. Only LD7 pallets are available for this aircraft/flight. How many LD7 containers are required to move this shipment? You know that the volume of the shipment is 803.4 ft 3 , and the average volume capacity of an LD7 pallet is 408 ft 3 . Therefore, we ESTIMATE we need 2 x LD7 pallets to move this shipment (803.4 ft 3 y 408 ft 3 max per LD7 = 1.9 = 2 x LD7 pallets).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
