Here at Quantem Aviation Services, we are a contractor who handles the loading and unloading of our customer's aircraft. We marshal the planes in, set them up, unload/reload, wrap-up, and send them out. Most packages shipped on the planes are loaded into a ULD (Unit Load Device). We handle the movement of the ULDs on and off the aircraft and in and out of the facility. The ULDs are transferred onto dollies which are equipped with a roller system. As a team, we work together to control the flow of the ULDs throughout the operation as they may weigh on average of 3,000 lbs. So you must be able to push/pull and be able to lift in excess of 50lbs. In addition to the larger aircraft, we also load and unload individual packages to/from smaller aircraft ("Feeder Planes") with the assistance of a conveyor belt to help transport the packages from the plane to the ULD.
We work in all outdoor elements, SNOW, RAIN, HEAT, WIND, and whatever else Mother Nature deems necessary for the season.
