Cargo Handling

Providing reliable, accurate and fast cargo handling.

AN Aviation Services Co offers its customers full international cargo handling services passed on IATA Standard Ground Handling basis.

Safe operation of aircraft requires all hold cargo and baggage to be weighed (or an accurate estimate of weight provided by using “standard” values), it must be loaded correctly and secured to prevent movement in flight.

Loading should be in full accordance with the generally applicable regulations and limitations, the operator loading procedures and in accordance with the instructions given by the person with overall responsibility for the loading process for a particular flight. These loading instructions must match the requirements for baggage/cargo distribution stated within the aircraft load and trim sheet.

ULD Handling and Control 

  • Unit Load Devices 
  • Most wide-bodied aircraft, and increasingly some narrow bodies, are able to use containers called Unit Load Devices (ULD). These can be used to consolidate baggage or cargo items before being loaded into the aircraft hold by specialized hydraulic lift equipment. The ULDs are then maneuvered manually to a final position on board by use of a roller floor, before being finally secured in position. 
  • ULDs must either be weighed, or the number of baggage items per container must be within a specified range and standard baggage unit weights applied.

Close interface with ramp services on the coordination of services and the seamless transfer of shipment between warehouse and aircraft parking ramps. 

  • Netting is used to restrain bulk-loaded loose baggage items within holds so that they do not move in flight. Any load that shifts in flight will move the aircraft’s center of gravity and can cause control difficulties (in extreme cases causing loss of control) and prevent baggage door opening post-flight. Cargo netting may also be used to divide larger holds into sections.

Furthermore, AN Aviation already processes over 1.050,000 tonnes of cargo offering an integrated handling product from aircraft loading and unloading, dangerous goods handling, supervision and capacity control.
