Unique and one of a kind
S4A Smart LOAD applications establishing the world’s first truly exception based
weight and balance and load planning system.
Centralized load planningBeing integrated with various sources such as flight data, crew data and load information, S4A Smart LOAD can support and monitor the airline whole load planning process.This solution fully automate and optimize the load planning activity, engaging agents only when economic or loading irregularities occur.
Automated Load ProcessS4A Smart LOAD provides Automated Load Process functionality, which allows automation of the entire load process – from the cargo manifest to airplane take-off.
The system is subjected to all air traffic regulations and airline business rules concerning cargo compatibility, Dangerous Goods and MEL Items handling. Load Preference tables enable users to configure a preferred position of specific types of cargo.
Automated BalanceDuring the whole load process the system checks if center of gravity is within limits. Moreover, during the automated process the system includes the optimum center of gravity location provided in AHM Configuration. It also displays a fuel vector indicating how center of gravity changes at the time when fuel is burnt. If it is impossible to load all manifested cargo, the system includes priorities provided for specific commodity codes and bumps cargo.
Available for everyoneIt is an extremely powerful yet simple to use solution, supporting both centralized and de-centralized airline load control models. The system perfectly combines the needs of airport ground operations departments and handling companies working in a multi-customer environment and with multi-role capability, including dispatch, load agent, freight, ramp agent, cockpit, engineer, etc.
Tight integration with S4A Smart COMMThrough the union of the S4A Smart LOAD and S4A Smart COMM applications, loading restrictions, irregularity handling, and direct communication are no longer challenges for any Airline.
