09 March 2018

Dnata Australia has signed a long-term agreement with Adaptalift GSE that will significantly improve the GSE fleet currently owned by Dnata via a programme of replacement, renewal and refurbishment. The agreement sees Adaptalift GSE take ownership of the entire motorised fleet across the six Australian airports where Dnata operates, combined with a full service and maintenance agreement. An extensive programme of renewal is already underway, covering such items as container/pallet loaders, pushback tractors, conveyor belts, and baggage tractors with orders placed with major manufacturers. This agreement will also see Dnata operating alternative power sources to the traditional diesel, with an all-electric baggage tractor fleet at Adelaide Airport (ADL), as well as the introduction of vehicle telematics to improve operator safety and maintenance tracking, and proximity warning systems on certain items of machinery. Daniela Marsilli, CEO Dnata Australia said: “Our long-term agreement with Adaptalift enables us to expedite a significant modernisation of our ground service equipment across the country, as well as add innovative technological solutions in the areas of safety for our operators, clients and their aircraft plus protection of the motorized assets themselves. Our operating costs will improve along with increased utilization and reliability, which ultimately improves service to our valued customer airlines.”
