  • We address the problem of loading as much freight as possible in an aircraft while balancing the load in order to minimize fuel consumption and to satisfy stability/safety requirements. Our formulation methodology permits to solve the problem on a PC, within ten min, by off-the-shelf integer linear programming software. This method decides which containers to load (and in which compartment) and which to leave on the ground.
