DHL 757 can take uld in the lowerdeck hold, but I don't know the code. The look like akh (a320 container) but a bit smaller.
LD3 can be loaded on b767 just like LD2 (standard 767 uld) but only one row, which means you loose lots of space. LD1 (standard b747 uld) can also be loaded on b767 but flat side first and you also loose space.

To follow up on what ATA L1011 said, the main cargo disadvantage of the 767 versus the A330, or DC10 and MD11 for that matter, is that it can only take one row of LD3's, whereas the others can take two rows.
I don't know about the 757. I do know that the A320 series can take a container (big deciding factor for SAA and ANZ for example), but I don't know what the name is, whether it is an LD3 or something smaller. So I assume that the 757 can take some kind of container, but maybe not the LD3.
Okay, enough talking out the rear. Any insight, anyone?!
It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.

Seeing as how the 757 fuselage is the same as the 737 727 and 707 i dont thin that they can take LD3's, ive never seen one loaded with containers...the 320 is a wider A/C and it can take them but Its rare the airlines get them that way...

The LD3 container for the A320 series is a variant called the LD-45.
The only modifications that some B757 have had is the telescoping
bulk pit that is motorized to push the cargo/baggage forward.
Ive heard that its very maintanence intensive and was not very
popular with many carriers...
Western airlines used to have some special containers they used for their
B727's but again, they were very limited...

can you give a registration (either OO- or G- maybe?)for the B757 that can take ULDs in the lower holds??? I haven`t come across any DHL 75F that is able to carry containers in the lower holds. And the converted ex-BA 757s don`t even have the telescope-like loading devices anymore. Less weight but more payload!
