Automated Load Control

Request a demoFirstLoad is a tablet application designed to mobilise traditional weight and balance software and empower airside operations with the latest information available.

FirstLoad is a truly global mobilised solution which is currently used in every continent in the world, making the creation of a Centralise Load Control (CLC) easy to deploy and creating efficiencies across the supply chain.

Easy to use and configure the solution uses information from various operational sources and displays them using a graphical user interface. The solution can be setup for simple clearance instructions or a fully integrated service allowing direct clearance of containers or load areas.

The solution is compatible with standard IATA messaging formats, translating these into meaningful information. Any Aircraft type can be configured from bulk loads to full containerised load plans; each can be setup on our simple rules based tablets for individual profiles, flight checklists and signatory authorisation.

Great collaboration - delivered on time and under budget exceeding all stakeholder expectations." - Qantas
