Wiremind has fine-tuned its Skypallet ULD and flight optimisation system, with more products to follow soon.
SkyPallet, which counts over 1,200 users in 100 countries, offers several service modules that can be used together or individually.
SkyPallet’s 3D Volume Calculator determines how much space a non-standard shipment would be occupying given available capacity options. It automatically considers contours and restrictions.
The 3D shipment visualisation can be shared with all involved parties.
SkyPallet’s Flight Planning module provides a ULD build-up sequence to optimise capacity utilisation.
This module was recently enhanced with a new visual build-up plan feature which caters to the specific needs of flight planners and GHAs.
Itcalculates whether an incoming shipment would fit on the flight, using dimension assumptions when the final details are not fully known.
SkyPallet’s Weight & Balance module ensures the trim of the flights. Its algorithm takes into account trimming requirements and carries out weight and density checks 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, 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.”
Wiremind is working on a number of additional products aimed at helping airlines and forwarders to better manage their cargo activities and will be launching these in the coming months.
