LUG introduces dynamic ramp system


LUG aircargo handling GmbH has implemented a new dynamic Ramp Service and Time Slot Management System at their terminal in the Cargo City South at Frankfurt International Airport effective 11 May 2015. LUG’s innovative software, which is offered free of charge, automates the allocation of loading bays for the delivery and collection of shipments, as well as for Road Feeder Services (RFS).

Users can reserve slots at the ramp in advance by entering their vehicle’s ETA (expected time of arrival), type of transport (import/export) and other consignment information (e.g. weight, number of pieces) into LUG’s web-based aiRSS software. The system validates the information and confirms the request. It assigns a time slot and ramp based on the user’s arrival information or makes an alternative suggestion if there are no available slots at the requested time.

In addition, it calculates the loading or unloading time based on the freight volume and initiates the documentation process prior to the vehicle’s arrival.
