Air Canada wins Hactl's world forklift and pallet building contest


Air Canada Cargo has been named the overall winner of the 7th International Forklift and Pallet Building Competition held by Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl), the main cargo handler at the airport, according to the Shipping Gazette. 
The winner of the separate forklift competition was Air Canada Cargo, with Japan Airlines International Air Cargo Terminal coming in second and Finnair Cargo Terminal Operations taking third place.
The winner of the pallet building competition is International Air Cargo Terminal, followed by Hactl, Air Canada Cargo and Finnair Cargo Terminal Operations.
In the order of first, second and third runner-ups as overall winners of the annual event for international airlines and ground handlers are International Air Cargo Terminal, Japan Airlines and Finnair Cargo Terminal Operations.
"This is a fun event with a serious message," said Hactl CEO Mark Whitehead. "The air cargo industry has equal need for efficiency, safety and best practice in ground handling and cargo terminal operations."
As a reflection of the significance of the competition, the event drew government officials, Secretary for Transport and Housing Anthony Cheung Bing-leung, Assistant Commissioner (Occupational Safety) of Labour Department Li Chi-leung, and Occupational Safety and Health Council Executive Director Tang Wah-shing.
The forklift element of the competition focuses on safety awareness and the technical handling of cargo. The forklift driver from each team is required to collect items of cargo from purpose-built racking, manoeuvring within a congested competition course.
The pallet-building element requires teams to build a contoured lower-deck winged pallet in accordance with the competition's strict rules. Scores are based on build time, build quality and load distribution. The teams with the lowest number of penalties are the winners.
The forklift driving safety and manual handling outstanding awards were clinched by Japan Airlines. Cargolux Airlines International received the best team leader award, and Nippon Cargo Airlines bagged the best team spirit award.
Representatives of the Carrier Liaison Group (CLG), Hongkong Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics (HAFFA), Nordisk Aviation Products and the Occupational Safety and Health Council judged the competition.
