Fleet Management

Fleet Services are a key pillar of our business and a major contributor to TCR’s ability to reduce a client’s total cost of GSE ownership.

Extensive GSE experience and detailed information on the usage of all our equipment is critical, which is why TCR has invested in the very latest data collection and management technologies.

For each GSE item, TCR collects and retains a range of information to assist our customers and help them maintain a cost-efficient fleet.

Ground handling operations require flexibility for additional flights (GSE in place in short notice) and flight reductions (need to adapt GSE cost as soon as possible).

TCR provides the best solutions to right-size the fleet.

TCR has a large, reliable network ; this is why we can offer this combined flexibility to our customers.

  • Extensive centralized and local information capture and analysis from +30.000 assets on 80 different airports, all from renown OEMs.
  • Enhancement of customer support mechanisms for aircraft handling requirements, through our specific TCR approach (information share and benchmarking).
  • Planning and assistance for customers to determine required quantities of GSE, families, model… to handle their own customers with safe, state of the art  equipment.
  • Usage of the right unit for the right purpose, through constant performance monitoring of all GSE brands and types (taking into consideration the specific environment of each airport and country).

Since we started working with TCR, we have direct access to operational data on our ramp equipment through the online fleet portal that we can access at all times. We also know exactly when our GSE needs to undergo maintenance. We have no bad surprises and therefore can better plan costs related to GSE and need less equipment.
