TCR Group adds two solutions for their customers to ease their ground operations, cost effectively and safely.

The deal with Targa Telematics for a worldwide partnership for motorised assets will enable the TCR Group to integrate the Targa Telematics technological platform into its offer of services to ground handlers and airlines.

An industry-wide mutually unique agreement has been signed in Brussels, cementing the partnership between TCR Group, the world-leading Ground Support Equipment (GSE) rental company active in 120 airports in 18 countries, and Targa Telematics, leader in solutions for car rentals and shared mobility. The latter will contribute its technologies for the management, maintenance, monitoring and pooling of service and ground support vehicles.

Through the partnership, TCR seeks to boost its offers to customers with a highly competitive and differentiated range of innovation-based services and, more generally, the further growth of a market in which it already enjoys consolidated leadership. Targa in collaboration with TCR intends to consolidate its role as a leader in the digitalization of airport management and the challenges inherent in ground handling – a sector currently in great ferment.

In a second agreement TCR Group will use start-up Sensolus (based in Gent) to implement their tracking technology on non-motorised ground support equipment (luggage carts) allowing airlines to track where the luggage carts are. More information here.
