Transforming GSE asset management

We ensure our customers fleets of vehicles and specialist equipment are where and when they need it - 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. This gives our customers the ability to focus on their core airline business thereby sharing the risk and removing the complexity. Our GSE capability includes:

  •  Entire or part fleet management including specialist equipment or vehicles
  • Tailored cost management that ranges from 'pay as you go' to full risk transfer
  • Specification and procurement of GSE to standardise and leverage better terms
  • Customised solutions using telematics and data driven evidence to optimise fleet performance

Optimising fleet availability

Babcock manages and maintains over 17,000 assets for Alitalia, Heathrow and Edinburgh Airports ranging from passenger buses to 70-tonne aircraft pushback tractors.

We transform equipment performance through ALCAMiE™, our unique approach to asset management to deliver results that matter to users of GSE. Working closely with our customer to understand their requirements, we look to ‘sweat assets’ to deliver better availability and increased efficiency – resulting in smaller high performing fleets

Reduce whole-life costs of ownership

We work closely with the supply chain to leverage better terms for our customer, from procuring new vehicles to through-life support. We reduce waste at every opportunity, and introduce innovation where it adds value to the customer’s operation.

Maximise workshop productivity

In developing a customised solution, we identify maintenance schedules that deliver improved fleet availability and performance. Key to this is ensuring modern on-site workshops with experienced multi-skilled technicians and streamlined processes. We constantly monitor workshop performance to improve repair turnaround times and identify bottlenecks and spare capacity. Our dedicated Airport call centre with resilient support technology also enables the right set up for rapid response times to key airport operators.

Delivering enhanced fleet data & reporting

A system of web-based reporting delivers the granular information provides a day-by-day extract of what is happening in the world of the customer’s assets, offering total visibility of performance, cost of ownership, and availability that helps managers make whole life decisions. We see telematics as an essential tool, both in monitoring asset performance and issues as well as helping to identify the optimal number of vehicles required within an operation.


Babcock delivers a sector unique approach to asset management, providing a proven engineering-led customised solution to managing complex fleets. ALCAMiE™, comprising a customised toolbox of systems, processes, telematics and skills sets, delivers a range of outputs that enable transformation in how customers’ assets are managed.

This approach is based over the whole life of an asset from procurement through to disposal. Encompassing web-based fleet reporting, core asset management, dedicated managed service centres and the customer accounting function, customers can benefit from increased availability, savings of around 10-15%, reduced costs and processing, and transference of risk.
