TCR Group and Targa Telematics sign industry-wide agreement in Brussels
25 April 2018
An industry-wide agreement has been signed in Brussels, Belgium, cementing the partnership between TCR Group and Targa Telematics. The latter will contribute its technologies for the management, maintenance, monitoring and pooling of airport service and ground support vehicles. Through the partnership, TCR seeks to boost its offers to customers with a highly competitive and differentiated range of 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 digitalisation of airport management and the challenges that accompany ground handling activities. The proven Targa Telematics digital platform is a pioneer in airport telematics with specific patents to its credit. By enabling the remote, real-time monitoring of GSE vehicles and motorised assets, it improves processes and activities, ensures optimum maintenance with significant safety repercussions and allows sharing between different operators, authorising access and use by relevant technical staff. The Targa Telematics digital platform is also able to certify to the authorities the adequacy of activities carried out and their compliance with current regulations. These features will be integrated with TCR’s competences, so that in addition to operating leasing services, it will open logistics and operational sites in all major airports for the support and the maintenance of vehicles used by their customers.
