GoDirect Ground could go global with Swissport

28 December 2018

Swissport and Honeywell have signed a five-year master services agreement that could see the GoDirect Ground service used across all Swissport operations at 318 airports in more than 50 countries worldwide.

Honeywell GoDirect Ground, created in partnership with Pinnacle earlier this year, enables users to connect ramp support services used for airport-based ground transportation vehicles to give ground handlers and airlines real-time insight into vehicle use and maintenance requirements. This includes vehicles undertaking aircraft loading and unloading, baggage sorting, and passenger or crew transportation.

Following a successful proof of concept demonstration at five of its ground-handling stations, Swissport evaluated the benefits of the GoDirect Ground solution and recognised an estimated 13% reduction in repair and maintenance costs, a better understanding of driver behaviours, and identification of the most commonly driven pathways at airports.
