One of the key challenges for WGH was managing their Ground Handling operations across the varying sizes and cargo volumes for their airports. With an ongoing objective of continuously striving to achieve the best in class operations, it was imperative for them to employ a technology that was capable of integrating the huge volume of their wide spread operations.
