Dubai International Airport: Making Smart Operations Even Smarter
Dubai is home to one of the busiest airports in the world. In 2018, the airport saw approximately 89 million passengers and it is projected to reach 103.5 million by 2020. To keep pace, Dubai International Airport is partnering with GoFleet to help coordinate its vast fleet with flight arrivals and departures.
Up until this point, Dubai Airports did not have a Vehicle Tracking and Management System (VTMS) set in place to monitor vehicle usage, driver behaviour, or to regulate road usage. GoFleet will bridge these gaps to help streamline operational efficiency.
What is GoFleet Doing to Help?
GoFleet Corporation, in partnership with its direct distributor, Geotab Inc. plans to deploy Dubai Airports with Geotab GPS/AVL tracking hardware to effectively track vehicles, assets, and passengers. Our solutions will improve airside safety involving fleet vehicles by enabling driver identification and direct accountability for all vehicle usage. This means that a driver’s behaviour will be monitored as they operate the vehicle. This includes speeding, harsh braking, driving on restricted routes, unwarranted idling time, and much more.
By monitoring unnecessary vehicle idling and optimizing vehicle usage, Dubai Airports will be effectively reducing CO2 emissions and their carbon footprint – benefitting not only the airport, but our planet at large.
Tracking and optimizing their fleet vehicles will allow for a reduction in ground support equipment road congestion. This will remove nonessential vehicles on key routes, which will make the orchestration of routine activities more efficient and improve response times for any emergency situations.
