Rushlift wins large GSE contract

Comment on this article

Rushlift GSE, the specialist airport ground support equipment subsidiary of Doosan Industrial Vehicles UK, has won a £3.4m contract to supply and maintain a fleet of 225 vehicles for ASC Handling’s new Gatwick airport operations.

The introduction of airside services at Gatwick by ASC Handling follows the company’s recent signing of an agreement to support charter airline, TUI.

The Gatwick contract is a significant expansion of Rushlift GSE’s seven year business relationship with ASC Handling, supplying specialist airside equipment to the company’s Heathrow operations under a long term leasing and maintenance arrangement.

Provision of the extensive range of vehicles at Gatwick, which includes pushback tugs, trailers, baggage carts, powered beltloaders, high-loaders and cars, was negotiated and co-ordinated within a tight timeframe, between Christmas 2019 and a deadline of March 4 2020. To ensure a smooth transition, a team of Rushlift GSE engineers, supervisors and managers, up to director level, were on station throughout the night prior to the deadline.
