Avro GSE’s powered equipment line is stacked: includes Fleet Management System & Managed Maintenance Program!

June 26, 2018. Avro GSE, a subsidiary of Saskarc Industries, launched their new line of powered equipment today. Not only is the equipment modern, lean and green, but it is equipped with their fleet management system – Avro Tracker – and has a one year managed maintenance program, called Avro Care, included.

The new line of Avro GSE powered ground handling equipment includes several models of baggage tractors, an aircraft pushback tractor, a conveyor belt loader, and more. Several items in their new product line are electric, which will help customers reduce their carbon footprint and cut costs. All of the equipment is specifically manufactured to withstand the harsh North American climate and comes with a 24 month warranty.

Under the Avro Care program, Avro GSE proactively monitors and manages all Avro GSE powered equipment and vehicle maintenance for one year, while longer subscription terms are offered and recommended. With three-tiered service levels of the Avro Tracker available, the Avro Care program enhances operations by helping to avoid unscheduled downtime due to malfunctioning equipment or poor operator behavior. This fleet management solution combined with the vendor managed maintenance program, will help prolong equipment life and maximize the value, performance, and efficiency of equipment assets.

Additional benefits of the Avro Care program include:

  • Minimizing the expenses of servicing a large equipment fleet
  • Simplifying and streamlining the job of fleet management
  • Continuous monitoring of operational status and service intervals
  • Locking in maintenance costs over the period of coverage
  • Documenting the complete service history for GSE

Levels of Avro Care:

Under the Avro Care program, customers have the option to select three levels of tiered care for the Avro Tracker Fleet Management System as well as select a Prepaid Scheduled Maintenance Program.
