Greener and more efficient airplane handling at Brussels Airport thanks to 'smart logistics'
Ground handling company Flightcare Belgium, along with Imec spin-off Essensium from Leuven, Belgium, has implemented a unique solution for real-time status management and exact position determination of its motorized handling fleet at Brussels Airport.
The new technology provides important advantages for the airport and its stakeholders, including more efficient and environmentally-friendly aircraft handling and more accurate flight information for passengers. The project is part of the 'smart logistics' program managed by the Provincial Department of Development of Flemish Brabant (POM Vlaams-Brabant).
Essensium’s VTS technology allows us to optimize our fleet – the number and types of vehicles as well as their use. On top of that, we can guarantee our services thanks to the dynamic and accurate dispatching of our vehicles.
