Rushlift GSE has signed a six-year global framework agreement to supply Menzies Aviation with GSE equipment.

Under the deal, Rushlift will lease 650 brand-new vehicles to Menzies Aviation’s ground handling operations at Heathrow and Gatwick airports including pushback tugs and HI loaders from Trepel, mobile conveyor belts and electric baggage and pushback tugs from TLD, and trailers from TBD.

The contract was signed in July with rollout underway, and it will continue through to the second quarter of 2022 when passenger air travel is expected to grow.

Tim Willett, Operations Director of Rushlift GSE says electric GSE vehicles will be introduced over the six-year term and it will look at other fuel options including biofuels and hydrogen.

He says: “One of the huge advantages of being a subsidiary of Doosan is that we have access to a world-leading team of specialists dedicated to researching sustainable, alternative fuels.”

Stephen Gallagher, Senior Vice President of GSE and Equipment at Menzies Aviation says: “The reliability and uptime of our ground handling equipment is absolutely imperative to the service we provide – our reputation depends upon it. We’re confident that Rushlift GSE will provide the GSE and support we’re looking for, both here in the UK and overseas.”
