Quick Ramp Transfer for Rapid Logistics

Quick Ramp Transfer, often referred to as QRT, is a high-priority and expedited process for transferring cargo or freight between different modes of transportation, typically from an arriving aircraft to another vehicle, such as a truck or train, for onward delivery. Quick Ramp Transfer is employed when time is of the essence, such as in the case of perishable goods, medical supplies, or emergency response situations. It minimizes delays associated with traditional cargo handling and transfers. 

Depending on the nature of the cargo, specialized equipment like refrigerated trucks or temperature-controlled containers may be used to maintain the required conditions during the transfer.

  • Less time spent on the ground during cargo transfers 
  • Reduced warehousing and storage expenses
