Air Dispatch CLC provides clients with fast, reliable centralised load control (CLC) solutions worldwide.
Our two ultramodern hubs in Prague and Warsaw currently produce over 400,000 load sheets per year with consistent on-time delivery performance of 99.98%.

Our “your CLC your way” policy means we provide solutions tailored to the unique requirements of each airline, our centralised load control service ensures:

  • Increased productivity for load controllers - automated flight departure monitoring and business rules.
  • Increased safety due to the reduced number of people involved in the load control process.
  • Reduced costs due to reduced training requirements caused by the reduced number of staff. 
  • Maximised fuel efficiency - reduced costs with optimised aircraft trim.
  • Increased revenue - optimised weight and balance allows for a gain in load capacity for freight.

Our expertise includes experience with Altéa Departure Control - Flight Management, the industry’s premier DCS built on new generation technology. Alternatively, our professional centralised load control centres provide the flexibility to adopt our clients’ own preferred systems.

Air Dispatch CLC is a subsidiary of the Chapman Freeborn group, which was established in the UK in 1973 and has over 40 years of experience in the aviation industry - including aircraft charter services, aircraft leasing, flight operations and airline support services. The group has over 30 offices worldwide and employs over 450 staff.

Since launching as an independent business in 2008, Air Dispatch CLC has grown into one of the world's leading experts in the provision of centralised load control solutions. 

We currently operate two advanced centralised load control centres in Prague and Warsaw and employ over 80 highly-trained professionals. We work with leading industry names including Finnair, Air Berlin, Qatar Airways and Scandinavian Airlines.

In 2013, we were proud to become the first dedicated centralised load control facility in the world to receive IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) certification.

We have developed a data warehouse that allows historic load control data to be used in fuel saving and revenue management projects. In 2013 we also launched our ULD tracking software that assists in the management of your ULD fleet.
