Ramp Resource Management (RRM) training is team-related training to make effective use of all available resources people, equipment, and information to optimize personal and flight safety, and the efficiency of the aircraft turnaround.
- Special procedures prescribed for abnormal loads such as:
- Those covered by Dangerous Goods Regulations
- Heavy items
- Oversize items
- Items have unusual dimensions/proportions.
- Flight details (Routing, Flight Number, and Date)
- Aircraft type, variant, and registration
- Distribution of hold loads.
- Void/nil fit positions
- Bags per ULD/hold
- Priority small package
- Quick Ramp Transfer
- Weight allocation to each compartment does not exceed limits.
- IATA Certified Dangerous Goods Handling Staff.
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).
- Consolidate baggage or cargo items before being loaded into the aircraft hold by specialized hydraulic lift equipment.
- The ULDs maneuver manually to a final position on board by use of a roller floor, before being finally secured in position.
- Weigh ULDs are a must 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.
- Use netting 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.
- Use cargo netting to divide larger holds into sections.
