Planeside Loading Tool
Brock Solutions' SmartLoad:
Benefits of Running with Brock Solutions’ SmartLoad Solution
- Is an automated loading tool that airport and airline personnel access at a mobile workstation to view load plans populated with up-to-the-minute load status information about passengers, baggage, and cargo.
- Enables airline and airport load planning personnel to validate fuel, center of gravity, and weight and balance details based on real-time information before an aircraft departs.
- Automatically alerts when load decisions deviate from the load plan.
SmartLoad provides airports and airlines with numerous benefits, including:
- Precise information for enhanced decision making– SmartLoad provides actual weights for baggage, fuel/flight distance ratios, center of gravity readings, weight/balance factor, etc. Having access to precise information for calculations based on real-time data is vital for prudent load planning decisions to be made in line with optimized safety considerations.
- Improved passenger experience – Providing airline and airport load-planning personnel with real-time information correlates positively with reduced numbers of mishandled bags and improved on-time departure metrics.
- Increased cost savings – Airlines and airports realize cost savings as a result of expediting time spent on payload decision making by load-planning personnel; reducing time spent dealing with mishandled bags; and reducing fines associated with late departures.
- End-to-end baggage tracking capabilities – Information collected and stored by SmartLoad can easily be combined with data compiled from other SmartSuite modules to provide complete end-to-end baggage tracking.
