Since 2016 the use of electric GSE has almost tripled with the TLD battery-powered pushbacks singled out as some of the most impressive and powerful GSE in regular deployment.

Swissport acknowledged that TLD were at the forefront of the innovative electric GSE revolution with equipment such as the TPX-100-E towbarless tractor – capable of saving 8 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

The ground handler also states that it has witnessed a 40% reduction in fuel consumption as a direct result of embracing electrically powered GSE.
