Hactl beats its own record for freighters handled in 24-hour period

By Rachelle Harry

Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) has announced that it recently (November 3) handled 104 freighters in 24 hours – breaking its previous record of 102 freighters, set on November 5, 2017.

Hactl said its new IT system and airside management app have increased its efficiency and productivity. It is also the only cargo handler in Hong Kong that can provide both terminal- and ramp-handling of freighters in a single service package.

The busiest handling period on the record-breaking day was between 2:00-3:00am, when Hactl simultaneously handled 13 freighters.

Hactl’s chief executive, Wilson Kwong, commented: “We are very proud that we have once again beaten our record for freighter handling in a single day. To have successfully processed 104 widebody freighters in just 24 hours is a clear illustration of the immense scale of our operations and resources.

“Recent new business wins, together with growth in demand ahead of Thanksgiving and Christmas, have come together to achieve this impressive result. But it’s once again the remarkable team I am so proud to lead, which pulled out all the stops around the clock, to ensure that every aircraft successfully maintained its tight turnaround schedule.”
