CHAMP Cargosystems Implements Weight & Balance App for Kalitta Air
CHAMP Cargosystems has successfully completed US-based cargo carrier Kalitta Air’s implementation of its Weight & Balance application used to manage its load planning more effectively. Kalitta Air has a fleet of sixteen Boeing 747 freighters, and is a leading cargo carrier in the US.
“Kalitta Air is delighted with its decision with CHAMP’s Weight & Balance, and is confident it will be a key benefit for the months and years to come,” says Conrad Kalitta, CEO, Kalitta Air. “Integrating this software is proof that using the most up-to-date IT solutions will reduce fuel consumption, and improve accuracy with a highly effective automated process.”
CHAMP says their product is a java based, modular built application enabling airlines to efficiently and safely plan all aircraft loads, however complex. The application also helps the user keep the aircraft within permissible center of gravity limits throughout the flight. The software not only ensures compliance with all operational and safety requirements, but also enables comprehensive audit trails and reporting, providing further business intelligence into the fleet’s overall performance.
“The ongoing relationship with Kalitta Air and CHAMP’s Weight & Balance has been a natural fit. The software is right at home with Kalitta’s expanding fleet. Kalitta’s devotion to accuracy in its processes will make load planning ever more efficient and effective,“ says Nicholas Xenocostas, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing at CHAMP Cargosystems. “We are confident this is only the start of a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
