Warehouse operation schedules are constantly adjusted to flight operations. Adjustments are made monthly, weekly, and in many cases, hourly.Facilities and equipment, forklifts dock lifts and roller systems, are purchased assets of and are routinely maintained more frequently than manufacturer recommendations to insure the life and optimal working performance of all equipment.Maintaining an “open door” policy with our airline clients is essential to our successful working relationships. Drawing from the unique interchange of information through individualized solutions with our clients allows us to incorporate these ideas within the structure of the operation.

  • How 3A Track Works

    3A Track implements full air waybill (FWB) data capture at the point of acceptance and transfers all flight information to an Alliance Air (3A) ACTM, electronically. Alliance Air’s surface vehicles, outfitted with Global Positioning Systems, automatically update the 3A Track System, which in turn sends an EDI message to the client. In addition, all of Alliance Air’s ground transportation vendors are linked to 3A Track so that completely coordinated pickup, delivery and status information is available from origin to destination – at all times. Once freight is within the Alliance network, uninterrupted process interfacing makes time definite performance a reality.

    3A Track streamlines the billing process by utilizing the captured FWB data. IATA Clearinghouse, local and third-party billing plans, without sacrificing time or accuracy. Full electronic settlement is available for those who want to dramatically reduce or eliminate accounting paperwork.

    Complete delivery information is accessible via a CCS, direct host-to-host communication or the Internet at the following address: Security parameters are tailored to each client’s specifications. 3A Track services are available to all of our interline clients, free of charge.
