Hactl handles record number of freighters

Comment on this article

Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) has broken its record for the number of freighters handled in a 24-hour period.

On November 3, Hactl handled 104 freighter aircraft, beating its previous record of 102, set on November 5, 2017.

The peak of activity took place between 02.00am and 03.00am, when 13 freighters were handled simultaneously. Recent upgrades to Hactl’s IT system, including a new air side management app, have enabled the company to increase its efficiency and productivity on the ramp.

Of the 104 freighter flights, 88 were fully handled by Hactl, both on the ramp and in its SuperTerminal 1 facility. Hactl is the sole cargo handler in Hong Kong, and can provide both terminal and ramp handling of freighters as a single service package.

Says Hactl Chief Executive Wilson Kwong: “We are very proud that we have once again beaten our record for freighter handling in a single day. To have successfully processed 104 widebody freighters in just 24 hours is a clear illustration of the immense scale of our operations and resources.

“Recent new business wins, together with growth in demand ahead of Thanksgiving and Christmas, have come together to achieve this impressive result. But it’s once again the remarkable team I am so proud to lead, which pulled out all the stops around the clock, to ensure that every aircraft successfully maintained its tight turnaround schedule.”
