Hi All,

I'm a little curious (being from AUS where we don't have any 757s) to know whether the cargo hold on 757s takes palletised/containerised cargo as with widebodied aircraft such as 767/A330, or whether they take "loose cargo" as with 737 and smaller aircraft??

Cheers...

All 757s in the U.S. are bulk loaded. But the 320 family, smaller aircraft, can take "cans"-- actually more like trays, and this is fairly common in Europe. So it wouldn't surprise me if 757s have the capability.

The lower cargo hold of 757 is all bulk. It cannot take any ULDs. However, it is available with a moving bin system or carpet system.

Yeah I don't believe the 757 can take ULD's, but as Ha763 said, they do have a moving belt system in their holds, this makes loading those heavy bags alot easier. There's a panel overhead. You just select which direction you want the holds floor to slide, then hit the button and the entire back wall as well as the rubber floor beneath you slides back.

B757 Freighters in the Lower Deck carry Bulk cargo very similiar to that in the B737s.However there is provision for a "Magic carpet" ;oading system on B757 freighters.

UPS 757s are bulk loaded in the lower holds, however to facilitate load/unload they have a roller rack down the center of each bay.

Some B757s have a 3rd Aft Bulk cargo door which opens exactly as the B737 door.
