Aluminum made ULDs are very expensive piece ofequipment, needs to be handled carefully inOperational Areas as well during on-load/off-loadto/from the aircrafts. Due various safety reasons, usage of DamageULDs are strictly prohibited by IATA , FAA andother Regulating authorities.MISHANDLING OF ULDs One Major reason of Restriction of PK Operation in EUCountries was due usage of Damaged ULDs by MajorDomestic Stations KHI LHE ISB. 4. FINANCIAL IMPACT ON PIA IF ULDs MIS MANAGED Despite financial crises, PIA had no option but had to procure new ULDsto run its Operation for EU, USA, Canada bound Flights, that needs ACategory ULDs only.At rate of Approximately PKR 80,000 each, Recently 500 Containers forbaggage were procured by the PHS Division and at rate of Approximately60,000 PKR each , 250 new PLT sheets were procured by Cargo Division. Procurement of 250 Pallet nets at rate of PKR 2500 each by CargoDepartment is still awaited. PIA had a sufficient number of B Category ULDs for domestic and otherstations where SAFA Check is not required, these ULDs are Repaired inRSD Workshop and utilized. PIA Also hold sufficient No. of BER (Beyond Economy Repair, termed CCategory ULDs. These Damaged ULDs are Utilized for Patching/Spare. 5. ULD MANAGEMENT HIRACHY 6. ULD CHAMP MANAGER SYSTEM(Window Based End-User Software by IATA Approved CHAMP) Effective management of ULD assets presents a major challenge for airlines. Lost equipment needs replacing, often at considerable expense, and incorrect handling canresult in damage leading to costly repairs or asset write offs. CHAMP ULD provides the most comprehensive and effective ULD management solutionavailable in the market to day, helping carriers to keep track of their assets and ensuringmaximum utilization per unit. Real-time system alerts combined with visibility of the airlines network-wide ULD inventoryhelps to ensure that equipment is in the right place, at the right time, and in the rightcondition. This is called END USER System, Operates and maintains Stations Inventory of ULDs withtheir own feed backs. Like UCMs (Unit Check Messages) ; SCMs (Stock Check Messages) . These Messages are received to System by Operational Station feedback on SITA Formattedtelexes and Automatically managed Stations inventory. ULD Chronic issues prevails because most operational stations, that does not Flash UCMs /SCMs hence is a chronic issue for PIA and cause of ULD Shortage/mismanagement. 7. HOW TO OVERCOME THIS CHRONIC ISSUE With Proper, regular and appropriate joint trainings in PTC connecting withOJTs for every PHS, Cargo, RSD, Quality, Safety, Engineering and MIS Officersand staff.
