Amerijet International, one of the largest U.S. cargo carriers operating from the Miami International Airport, and Quantum-South, a leading logistics technology firm, announced the successful completion of a joint Proof of Concept (PoC) project.

The project concentrated on leveraging aircraft loading optimisation to enhance cargo load factor and revenue per flight, says an official release from Amerijet.

"Quantum-South's solution features an aircraft load optimisation module, designed to optimise container placement to maximise transported weight, volume, priority mix, or revenue mix, with a focus on centre of gravity (CoG) optimisation. Additionally, the air cargo bin packing module selects shipments for each flight to optimise the booked priority with container assignment and precise instructions on how to build the container such as the location and order of placement for each piece in the shipment. Quantum-South's solution was seamlessly integrated with Amerijet's cargo management system, powered by the SmartKargo backend application, further enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of cargo operations. "

Quantum-South examined data from 451 flights during the Proof of Concept project, the release said. "The solution identified loading alternatives that increased payload by up to 30 percent and volume by up to 76 percent. For instance, Quantum-South successfully replaced a previous load plan consisting of containers such as PAGs and PQAs with an optimised plan utilising a variety of containers like AKEs, TYPE A-1, TYPE A FRONT, and TYPE A AFT units."

Eric J. Wilson, Chief Commercial Officer, Amerijet says: "This substantial enhancement in cargo load factor can greatly enhance revenue per flight and increase opportunities for customers through more efficient use of capacity. We are pleased with the PoC project's outcomes and foresee potential benefits across multiple areas."

Rafael Sotelo, Co-Founder & President, Quantum-South adds: "The project's success at Miami International Airport demonstrates the significant potential of our cutting-edge solution in optimising cargo load factors. We are excited to continue working with Amerijet International and uncover more optimisation opportunities to further enhance their operations."

Amerijet operates a fleet of Boeing 757 and 767 freighter aircraft, providing cargo services to 48 destinations across the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America and Europe. Amerijet's global network reaches 476 destinations to all major airports in Europe, Asia, South Africa and the Middle East, the release added.
