This paper deals with the broad aspects of how the Society of Automotive Engineers, Aerospace Equipment Division, is involved in promoting air cargo standards on the international scene. As such, the various standards organizations for air cargo items are identified, their charters explained, how they interface with each other, and, specifically, how SAE has an inroad in projecting technical standards developed by Committe AGE-2, Air Cargo & Aircraft Ground Equipment Systems. As a case in point, the 8 foot by 8 foot container specification is traced chronologically.
