Freight Tracking

Alkan Air utilizes a custom designed freight tracking program which is one of a kind in the air charter industry. We recognize the value of the cargo we transport and importance of knowing where it is at all times. Our software tracks freight as it is received in our yard, loaded onto the aircraft and returned to base. This progressive system allows for a high level of accountability and peace of mind for our customers.

Recent updates to the software allow customers to log in and view what freight has been accepted and awaiting transport to their site. As freight is loaded and the aircraft departs, this inventory list is updated and refreshed immediately.  This gives project managers real time information to assist them in their transportation and project planning.
