Delivery of ramp equipment is slowly coming to an end at LGG for BAS

Following the signature of a deal last April, TCR has started and completed, perfectly on time, the delivery of the BAS set of ramp equipment. 30t-main deck loader, 7t lower deck loader are the main pieces, GPU, tractors (2) and 60 dollies (10ft & 20ft) are completing the set. Push-back vehicle will be incorporated in January once BAS will enter its new 6,000m2 warehouse located next to the present one. The elaboration of the equipment list took into consideration the capability to render a cargo service independently of subcontractors, and to fully control the cargo handling sequence from the aircraft to the truck.

BAS takes good care of crews providing luxury vehicle for ramp transport and beyond ...

Last Monday, BAS did purchase a great piece of ramp equipment : the crew bus. Crew transportation is a compartment of ramp services for which BAS want to deliver an outstanding performance. After a long flight, we are of the opinion that crews deserve to distress as soon as they get down the stairs. Whatever the final destination is, airport exit gate or downtown hotel, crews will enjoy our punctuality, our driver's friendliness and the confort of a 9-seater classy Mercedes Benz crew bus. Clean, safe and nicely powered, the cruise on board our "starred" vehicle will be a mesmerizing moment for all.
