Air cargo logistics provider Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has deployed Fiix’s computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) to improve the performance of its cargo handling, equipment, and facility assets.

WFS said that it has already tested this technology to support its operations in Paris, Madrid, and London.

By using the CMMS, WFS was able to register, create work orders and gather history against all assets, as well as track and measure equipment usage and performance in real time.

It was able to receive maintenance requests from users and create scheduled maintenance routines.

The CMMS solution also allowed WFS to track and report on all maintenance work to optimise asset performance.

It now plans to roll out this solution across its other stations in Europe.

WFS Operations and Transformation head Sebastien Burnier said: “WFS has a significant and diverse range of cargo handling equipment and facility assets, which enables us to meet our customer service goals and helps to ensure safety and security across of our cargo operating environment.

“This not only means having the right equipment in the right place at the right time, but it also requires every piece of equipment to be operating efficiently to perform the tasks required.

“Using the Fiix CMMS system gives us full visibility of our equipment via a clear and precise dashboard. It will help us to maintain the highest levels of service, improve productivity, and reduce the downtime and cost pressures of failed or under-performing equipment.”

Last month, WFS was awarded a contract by Zongteng Group to manage its freighter flights at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) International Airport.
