AAR’s Nordisk to provide fuel-saving unit load devices to China Southern Airlines
AAR’s Nordisk Aviation Products has received orders for more than 1,100 lightweight air cargo containers and pallets from China Southern Airlines. Nordisk’s Unit Load Devices (ULDs), among the lightest-weight in the industry, will provide the airline fuel savings of more than 1,100 tons of fuel a year, reducing carbon emissions by more than 3,500 tons. The containers and pallets will be manufactured at Nordisk’s facility in Kunshan, China, for shorter delivery lead times to the customer.
