If you can read this certificate you’re not too close


Independent ground handler Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) has become the first in Asia to receive an IATA Enhanced GSE Recognition Program certificate.

The programme encourages the installation of anti-collision systems on new and existing ground support equipment (GSE), to prevent expensive damage to aircraft on the ramp.

Hactl began installing anti-collision equipment to its fleet in 2017. Its collision avoidance systems trigger an audio-visual alert to operators when GSE is close to aircraft.
