Unit Load Devices (ULD) expert James ‘Jim’ Jackson has been welcomed to The International Air Cargo Association’s (TIACA) Hall of Fame. He is credited with designing the now ubiquitous LD3 airfreight container. He spent 40 years with American Airlines, where he held management roles in line cargo operations, aircraft and cargo ground equipment development, aircraft specification and configuration, and cargo market and finance planning.

He will be formally inaugurated to the Hall of Fame at a gala dinner at TIACA’s Executive Summit and Annual General Meeting in Miami, Florida on 20 May.
