Busiest day ever at Hactl
Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) has broken its all-time record for the number of freighters handled in a 24-hour period. On 3 November, Hong Kong’s largest independent cargo handler took care of 104 freighter aircraft – beating its previous record of 102, set on 5 November 2017.
The peak of activity took place between 2 and 3 a.m., when Hactl simultaneously handled 13 freighters. Recent upgrades to Hactl’s IT system – notably a new airside management app – mean the company has increased its ramp efficiency and productivity. 88 of the 104 freighter flights were fully handled by Hactl, both on the ramp and in its "Super Terminal 1" facility.
Hactl says it is the only cargo handler in Hong Kong that can provide both terminal- and ramp handling of freighters as a single service package. (ah)
