Capacity optimisation software firm Wiremind is looking to expand in air cargo to meet the current challenge of a lack of space on aircraft.

The company pointed out that as a result of the pandemic and the loss of bellyhold capacity it has become “more crucial” to ensure the efficient use of air cargo capacity.

The use of digital solutions is also on the rise. Wiremind said demand for its SkyPallet software has increased since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.

To meet this need, Wiremind is expanding its air cargo team and launching a dedicated unit.

Nathanaël de Tarade, chief commercial officer at Wiremind, said: “Given the acceleration of digitalisation in air cargo, along with an increased connectivity between stakeholders’ processes and systems, Wiremind has decided to launch a dedicated business unit with a clear roadmap and goal for the coming years.

“There is huge potential for further digitalisation in Air Cargo, yet the industry currently lacks data science expertise at the right level. We know that it can certainly benefit from similar technology, such as Deep Learning models, for example, that we have successfully deployed on large-scale projects in several industries.

“Therefore, we have already doubled the size of our air cargo team, and aim at tripling it within the coming months.”

Wiremind’s SkyPallet solution is a digital capacity management system that aims to maximise aircraft, pallet and ULD space utilisation through flight optimization processes.
