The Future of Weight and Balance – By Loadmasters, for Loadmasters

Discover how CHAMP's Cargospot Weight & Balance revolutionizes air cargo operations by optimizing center of gravity for safety, efficiency, and sustainability.

The importance of balancing the center of gravity on any aircraft cannot be understated. Whether it be a passenger or cargo flight, Loadmasters work hard to meticulously calculate and optimize the center of gravity of the aircraft. Any deviations or miscalculations can have disastrous consequences and compromise the safety and load optimization of the flight.

In recent years, e-commerce has also experienced significant growth, making capacity optimization an even more important topic in air cargo. There have been shifts in the industry to streamline processes to make more accurate, environmentally friendly, safer and quicker decisions when it comes on to load management. Precise weight and balance calculations for optimal cargo placement is one key area providing efficiency in this new landscape.

Automating and digitalizing the weight and balance process also drastically reduces time offloading and reloading the aircraft, leading to quicker turnaround times. This has a significant impact on profitability and allows airlines to reduce costs while gaining efficiencies.

In years past, air cargo Loadmasters have been responsible for keeping a physical load sheet that allocates ULD’s to calculate and maintain an optimal center of gravity. This allows the plane to take off and fly safely, whilst enjoying maximum fuel efficiency which generates cost savings and is best for sustainability.

As technology progressed, Excel often replaced the paper load sheet and formulas were developed to automate these calculations and generate a load sheet to ensure the safety of the flight. However, as the air cargo industry undergoes its digital transformation, technology has evolved to digitalize the weight and balance process.

In 2011, CHAMP launched Cargospot Weight & Balance, a web-based system developed by Loadmasters for Loadmasters to provide extreme accuracy, ease, and safety for air cargo flights. As the gold standard in weight and balance systems, it has been approved for use by numerous civil aviation authorities globally due to its industry-leading functionality and reliability and provides versatile aircraft support for a wide range of pure freighter and passenger converted freighter Boeing and Airbus models.

Users worldwide flock to Cargospot Weight & Balance for its intuitive drag and drop functionality, industry-standard messaging and APIs for seamless integration with other systems, and famed Autoload feature. Autoload is backed by advanced and powerful AI algorithms that produce the best load possible within seconds, dramatically cutting down on time and manual labor. It even loads ULDs in the right sequence for multi-sector flights, handles special loads such as large and off size cargo, and properly segregates dangerous goods.

As a cloud-based application, Cargospot Weight & Balance can be used on computers, tablets, and smartphones with no software installation. It is particularly unique in that Cargospot Weight & Balance can be used offline for flying loadmasters, and in remote locations for centralized load control, meaning the load sheet can be produced without being in the same physical location as the aircraft. This is particularly attractive for charter and private flights who are looking for an independent solution.

While Cargospot Weight and Balance was developed to ensure the safety of cargo aircraft via an optimized center of gravity, the macro environment in which air cargo businesses operate also make it impossible to ignore the associated cost savings and sustainability benefits.

By flying with a carefully calculated optimal center of balance, airlines are able to consume less fuel thereby saving on fuel costs and emissions. Both cost-efficiency and sustainability are increasingly shaping purchasing decisions in the air cargo industry, making Cargospot Weight & Balance a well-rounded decision for airlines.

Customers of Cargospot Weight & Balance enjoy dedicated and reactive support to ensure a seamless experience, and benefit from mitigated risk by digitalizing their load sheet calculations.
