Logistic Control System (LCS2)
Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd. (Hactl)'s LCS is an efficient and sophisticated computer system to handle cargo storage, transfer and retrieval in Hactl Super Terminal 1 for specific types of containers in an efficient and least manpower manner. The system is developed in-house and provides round the clock service. The LCS comprises the core system LCS-CSS and LCS-BSS. In addition, a Geographical Information System (SDS) and a 3D virtual simulator (PLC simulator) are operated to track and visualise equipment location, resource distribution, and allow load performance simulation to project the operation needs.
Comments from Judging Panel
With the continuous improvement on the existing Logistic Control System, the company has increased their current cargo handling capacity from 2.5 million tons per year to 3.5 million tons per year. However, the additional investment on LCS per cargo ton is only HK$27. Furthermore, the company has well applied technology to enhance its services to customers (more than 90 airlines and 1,000 freight forwarders) with over 99.9% annual availability since the rollout in 2005. Although it is quite difficult to have another similar local company with similar system application for comparison, it is not doubtful that the company has performed well since Hong Kong is the number one air cargo handling hub in Pacific Asia.
