GSE Rental and Operational Leasing

Perform operations in a timely, efficient,
safe reliable manner

 

TCR’s leasing offer can be summed up in two words – flexibility and reliability. Whether your needs are for short term (leasing) or long term (operational leasing), for a single motorized or non-motorized GSE, or for an entire fleet, TCR stands ready to translate your needs quickly and easily into robust solutions.

Rapid and flexible response to your GSE needs is possible thanks to our extensive fleet. With over   15 000 GSE units in our fleet, we guarantee prompt delivery of all of our GSE, whether they are needed to start a handling contract or to cope with increased seasonal activity. We can also offer you brand new GSE for leasing when pre-agreed.

Operational Leasing

TCR has an in-depth understanding of the pressure of today’s complex and high-speed handling environment. Our operational leasing services were developed specifically with this environment in mind. Our priority is to ensure your business is given the right support, at the right time, all the time:

reliable GSE when you want it; quantity variation to cope with short handling contracts; transparent and upfront R&M invoicing; high quality technical expertise; frequent equipment updates not to mention flexible financial terms.

Operational leasing is a long-term balanced combination

The benefits of our Full Service Rental

  • Customers can choose the length of the contract
  • Customers pay only for what they need
  • Customers are guaranteed the most suitable GSE for their operations from a range of brands
  • TCR adapts and replaces GSE as and when required

  • Customers don’t need to worry about buying or managing spare parts, because TCR will maintain and repair all the equipment that is rented for a price set in advance. This prevents budget overruns on maintenance costs
  • TCR is liable for risks relating to any rented equipment being kept out of service for long periods during preventative or curative maintenance
  • TCR takes on the risk of GSE obsolescence and the resale of used GSE.
  • Costs are always kept in direct proportion to the amount of activity undertaken by our customers. During times when activity is low, TCR will reduce the amount of GSE so costs are kept to a minimum.

Pooling

TCR also provides successful pooling solutions that allow ground handlers to share equipment when possible and in doing so achieve substantial cost reductions. By sharing GSE, operators can achieve significant cost savings by having less equipment in place. This means that less space on an airport is required, facilitating further savings since the cost of space is likely to increase with ever tighter environmental regulations.

TCR pioneered the concept of GSE fleet pooling at Heathrow in September 2004. Since then, our pooling operations have grown year-on-year with additional pooling solutions developing successfully in other European airports.
