Our Objective: to Prevent as Many Ramp Agent Injuries as Possible.

TISABAS saves time, lower costs, create efficiencies and, most importantly, provide a safer work environment for ramp crews.

38 years of experience in the industry, in conjunction with results of numerous studies, clearly show that change is needed.

The Problem

Ramp agents spend their working hours loading and unloading cargo and baggage weighing from 30-100 lbs. These items need to be moved in a space about 25 feet long and less than 4 feet high. In most cases this involves either throwing or sliding objects, which causes numerous problems for ramp agents, airlines, and their customers. The current system provides significant risk of bodily injuries as well as damage to aircraft and cargo. Sliding cargo creates friction that slows down the process. The alternative of throwing objects can result in damage to aircraft and cargo. In addition, ramp agents can easily injure their backs by sliding or throwing cargo. The physical demands of the job alone cause inefficiencies in operations that stress ramp agents and cost airlines money.

The Ramper Advantage

TISABAS is a compact motorized folding conveyor system that goes into the aircraft belly and mechanically moves baggage and cargo, eliminating the need to throw heavy baggage, mail and cargo the length of the aircraft belly.
