Protecting ramp personnel and assets through real-time visibility
and reporting, access control, and geo-fenced security.
Managing aircraft Ground Service Equipment (GSE) effectively poses significant challenges. Tens of thousands of GSE vehicles operate at airports around the world. The vast majority are not keyed, because it is impossible for drivers to keep dozens of keys in their pockets. But that means anyone can take and use any piece of equipment without accountability for its use (or abuse), and without any visibility to the vehicle’s owner.
Equally challenging to managing GSE fleets is controlling the significant costs of vehicle acquisition, vehicle maintenance, and operator labor the single largest cost component of ground handling operations.
You are delivering outbound bags to scheduled flights
You need to move three fully loaded baggage carts to Gate 7
Your standards say a trip should take 7 minutes and 30 seconds per round-trip of labor “allocated” for the delivery
The actual time recorded by your VMS is 5 minutes and 45 seconds (average over the course of several months), indicating the standard can be modified
RESULTS: A 23% reduction of the time standard and paid resource level. This process, applied to all of your labor planning, translates to a significant cost savings based on reallocation in your workforce or reduction in future hiring plan with no impact on your operation.
