Skyway Aviation Handling Company PLC (SAHCO) has acquired a fleet of brand new baggage tow tractors to boost its cargo operations.
The tow tractors, according to Mrs. Adetola Vanessa Uansohia, General Manager, Corporate Communications of SAHCO, have the capacity to convey up to 40 tonnes of baggage or cargo and are the best aviation ground handling equipment in Nigeria.
Uansohia noted that the baggage tow trucks, manufactured in Germany, combine comfort, safety and flexibility with the latest technology.
‘’They can convey up to 45 tonnes of baggage and cargo on a level ground and up to 40 tonnes on wet or hilly surfaces.
‘’The tow trucks are equipped with a tier 4 compliant engine which is to significantly reduce emissions of particulate matter and nitrogen to near zero level in compliance with the European Environmental policy thereby making them environmental friendly with little or no emission.
‘’In addition, the baggage tow tractors are very user friendly, prevent hernia and are very durable and rugged,’’ she said.
Apart from SAHCO’s massive and constant investment in ground handling equipment, the general manager said ‘’it is also worthy of note that SAHCO’s team of engineers have manufactured various equipment with locally sourced materials which include fuel bowsers, toilet bowsers and baggage carts to further boost client satisfaction and to ensure speedy service delivery.
‘’The company’s immense investment in technology which has resulted in excellent performance has received a lot of accolades from various bodies across the world.’’
