Quantum leap for air cargo optimisation

Quantum computing software company Quantum-South has launched advanced versions of its air cargo optimisation solutions.

The air cargo optimisation software developed by Quantum-South uses quantum algorithms with the aim of enabling air cargo companies to maximise loading efficiency in operations, increase profitability, and reduce costs.

The software intelligently considers factors such as maximum weight and length, centre of gravity, shear, and the shape of the fuselage, ensuring compliance with all necessary restrictions.

Unit load device and pallet load optimisation is one of the focus areas for the company. The software optimises the cargo build-up process using precise dimensions and weight obtained at acceptance, resulting in an efficient utilisation of cargo space and maximising certain business rules like the priority of packages to be transported, said Quantum-South.

Aircraft load optimisation is another issue tackled by the software, which is designed to intelligently optimise the aircraft load to ensure optimal utilisation of resources, enhance operational efficiency and reduce fuel consumption.

Quantum-South’s software also addresses fuel consumption by optimizing the location of the centre of mass (on the aircraft), which aims to result in cost savings and environmental benefits.

Rafael Sotelo, president and co-founder of Quantum-South, commented: “We are excited to introduce our enhanced air cargo optimization solutions powered by quantum inspired algorithms. With our innovative approach, we aim to transform the air cargo industry by helping companies increase revenues, reduce costs, and achieve operational excellence.”
