CargoLogicAir, the Great British Cargo Airline, has implemented CHAMP’s Weight & Balance solution – flying again to provide much-needed freighter capacity supporting the global supply chain in these challenging times. After suspending operations in February, CargoLogicAir (CLA) resumed operations in April with two B747-400F to transport personal protective equipment (PPE) for the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).
While mainly operating to the UK, CargoLogicAir has also commenced scheduled flights to Edmonton, Canada, and some destinations in the US. As one of the few European Cargo Carriers CargoLogicAir also has the availability and capability to support other European Countries.
CHAMP Weight & Balance is a powerful tool for advanced load planning. It is designed to make freighter aircraft loading safer, faster, and more efficient. It helps to not only reduce costs and maximize the use of available space but with its state-of-the-art algorithm allows achieving fuel-saving targets and reduces carbon footprint. With the enhanced Autoload functionality it also offers a user-friendly convenient software complying with all safety and auditing regulations.
“Being already familiar with CHAMP’s Weight & Balance solution and its unique standalone version, we were very eager to rapidly implement this solution to manage our freighter handling and load planning, and get us moving again,” says David Grymonprez, Ground Operations Manager at CargoLogicAir. “Coming from a manual load planning background and having experience with inhouse weight & balance solutions at other cargo airlines – CHAMP has by far the best, easiest to use and most convenient software. As an end-user, it has it all there!”
“Air cargo is essential to the supply chain,” says Lee Booth, Vice President Global Products at CHAMP Cargosystems. “CHAMP Weight & Balance is a powerful solution for the complex and critical task of load planning – ensuring safety while maximizing the capacity of the aircraft. We have the flexibility and experience to rapidly set up, train, and implement a customer in a very short time. We are delighted that CHAMP could support CargoLogicAir to get back in the air.”
