Questions Air Freight Page | 74 2017 Exercise 4.3 (Question) Container Requirements and Loading Calculations Shippers and freight forwarders are continually looking for ways to save costs. One of the ways in which to do this is by containerizing or unitizing cargo. By consolidating many shipments into one, then loading them into aircraft containers/unit load devices(ULDs), the shipper or freight forwarder can benefit from 2 cost savings: consolidating cargo, and loading the cargo into a ULD themselves. Airlines may provide preferential rates for “ shipper loaded” ULDs. Note: Refer to Appendices “B,” “E,” and “F” for conversion tables, weight/volume r atio and ULD dimensions and maximum payload. 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? Actual Calculation 2. Using previous estimating example, we have asked the customer what the crate and carton sizes are. The customer tells you that each of the 15 crates is 46 in x 38 in x 38 in, and each of the 150 cartons is 18 in x 12 in x 12 in. Each crate has a weight of 1,500 lb, and each carton has a weight of 30 lb. We have previously estimated that the customer requires 3 x LD7 pallets. Now we can mathematically determine

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
