        In December 1977 PIA became signatory to IATA Multilateral ULD Control Agreement to safeguard PK Assests. In order to achieve this objective all instructions issued from HEAD OFFICE in the past have been consolidated as Plicies & recommended procedures in the form of ULD CONTROL MANUAL for your ready reference. Please make sure you go through the contents to keep yourself abreast with the latest handling procedures.
       To stress the importance of ULDs, a ULD CENTRAL CONTROL at Karachi has already started Functioning & Monitoring the movements of units throughout the NETWORK. The staff positioned at stations very closely monitors the movement of units. This action will ensure that PK units are LOST or taken away by other users without first signing a Control Receipt.  It is important for our Station Managers, Cargo Managers, cargo Terminal Managers & Field Staff to know:

(a) Where are Our Units?
(b) Which Carrier has them
(c) How long they been out of PIA System?
(d) Is PIA assured of getting compensation in the form of DEMMURAGE?
(e) Is PIA assured of getting payment if PK units are not returned.  

I trust this Manual will be properly used by all our stations & Staff Concerned.
