CHAMP Cargosystems has signed long term customer Silk Way West Airlines to its Weight & Balance load planning solution for their fleet of Boeing 747 freighters. This extension by the Baku-based airline to Weight & Balance reaffirms its strong relationship with CHAMP.

Serving more than 50 destinations worldwide, Silk Way West Airlines was searching for a credible IT solution that would allow staff perform their load planning faster, with greater accuracy, whilst optimizing the fuel burn of their aircraft.

“Silk Way West Airlines is happy to have an even wider relationship with CHAMP,” says Kamran Gasimov, CEO at Silk Way West Airlines. “The breadth of functionality and ease of use made it a simple choice to incorporate CHAMP’s Weight & Balance solution into the suite of products we already use.”

“We are delighted to further expand our portfolio of services that we are providing to Silk Way West Airlines, re-affirming our mutually beneficial relationship,” says Nicholas Xenocostas, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing at CHAMP Cargosystems. “We
are sure that the versatility of our Weight & Balance Solution will help our client further enhance their operational excellence.”
In addition to Weight & Balance, Silk Way West Airlines are using CHAMP’s Traxon Global Customs, Cargospot Airline and Cargospot Revenue applications.

Innovative Information Technology with Proven Benefits
CHAMP’s Weight & Balance is currently the most advanced load planning software in the market, with functionality that encompasses an auto-load option with built-in logic to ensure effective off-loading on multiple flight-leg operations. The solution enables airlines to efficiently and safely plan all freighter aircraft loads, however complex, and helps load masters to keep an aircraft within permissible center of gravity limits throughout the flight.

The software not only ensures compliance with all operational and safety requirements, but also enables comprehensive audit trails and reporting, providing further business intelligence into the fleet’s overall performance.
