Qatar Airways Cargo is the first to use Gaussin's zero-emission innovation: the AMDT FULL ELEC

Gaussin and Qatar Airways Cargo are pleased to announce the successful testing and commissioning of the AMDT FULL ELEC automotive multi-directional transporter for air cargo pallets, with production under way for delivery in Q2 2022.


This multi-directional transporter for airport cargo operations has been developed by Gaussin in close collaboration with Qatar Aviation Services Cargo (the cargo ground handling subsidiary of Qatar Airways Group). It is zero-emissions, 100% electric and compatible with all types of unit load devices (ULDs).  It has a payload of up to 7 tonnes, a battery life of up to 6 hours and is rechargeable, allowing 24/7 use. The AMDT FULL ELEC serial production version will be locally assembled, in Qatar.


Capable of operating both inside and outside of the cargo terminal within minimal space, the AMDT will reduce the normal footprint required for manoeuvring, resulting in additional storage space and ensuring effective readiness of all cargo to be loaded onto the aircraft. 
Powered by LMP® lithium metal polymer batteries capable of operating in high temperatures, the AMDT has been specifically designed for use in the weather conditions of the Middle East. The state-of-the-art equipment includes integrated weighing scales that can check pallet weight against tag weight, in line with Qatar Airways Cargo’s focus on maintaining safety and security within its operations. 


“We at Qatar Airways Cargo are proud to be using this innovation and to have played a part in its design, taking us a step closer to a more sustainable industry. Qatar Airways Cargo is aware of the challenges of tomorrow and is fully committed to building a greener future with its partners,” said Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo at Qatar Airways Cargo.


Christophe Gaussin, CEO of Gaussin, commented: “Gaussin is pleased to be a partner of Qatar Airways Cargo, supporting it in its sustainable goals through its expertise in designing, assembling and offering smart, connected zero-emissions vehicles for freight transportation.”
Gaussin and Qatar Airways Cargo signed a contract in 2020 for the delivery of 6 AMDTs including an option for 50 units. The aim is for these transporters to gradually replace the cargo airline’s diesel pallet carriers, marking another step towards Qatar Airways Cargo's goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050, in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030.
