SkyPallet counts over 1,200 users in 100 countries. It offers several service modules that can be used both together or individually. Now Wiremind customized its Skypallet ULD as well as the flight optimisation system.
Thanks to the SkyPallet’s 3D Volume Calculator, the actual quantity of a non-standard shipment would be easily detected, giving information about how much space would be occupying given available capacity options. The 3D shipment visualisation can be shared with all involved parties.
To optimize capacity utilisation, a ULD build-up sequence is provided by SkyPallet’s Flight Planning module. Recently, this module was promoted with a new visual build-up plan feature that caters to the specific needs of flight planners and GHAs. It can easily calculate whether an incoming shipment would fit on the flight, using dimension assumptions when the final details are not fully known.
When it comes to the trim of the flights, it is ensured by the SkyPallet’s Weight & Balance module. Its algorithm takes into account trimming requirements and carries out the weight and density checks in order to ensure the aircraft’s centre of gravity (CG) is properly positioned.
The average calculation time for a shipment in SkyPallet is under 4 seconds, and a full aircraft is calculated in less than 1 minute. Nathanaël de Tarade, who is a chief commercial officer at Wiremind, said:
“Our vision at Wiremind is to offer the ultimate end-to-end software solution to the air cargo market. In order to do that, we work closely with industry stakeholders who have a global vision and established cargo expertise, not just in operations and handling, but also in commercial, pricing, and inventory management. This industry knowledge, combined with our data-science intelligence, results in a unique supporting software solution that serves to greatly simplify the work of handlers, flight analysts, sales, reservation agents and operations in their daily tasks. They benefit from sharing the same data at all stages of the cargo process, from quotation to booking to build up to delivery. This not only speeds up software-supported decision-making but also largely reduces the risk of errors caused by faulty or multiple data inputs for the same shipment.”
In the coming months, Wiremind will be launching its new additional products whose aim is to help airlines and forwarders better manage their cargo activities.
