Vestergaard Company Leverages loT to Optimize the Efficiency of their Mission-Critical Aircraft Equipment

Vestergaard specializes in producing aircraft service trucks-including deicers, vacuum toilet service units, potable water units. Airports around the world depend on Vestergaard's service trucks and equipment to be in the right place at the right time. For example, Vestergaard has about 85 trucks running in Frankfurt. If their systems break down on a winter day, the capacity of the entire airport would be dramatically reduced to around 30%.

By integrating their Data Transmission System (DTS) which manage a small subset of data from Trucks with the ThingWorx lloT platform, Vestergaard build a new generation of software with the objective of significantly impacting their bottom line. To start, the ThingWorx lloT platform helps simplify and optimize job workflows, thereby improving the operational efficiency of service trucks. Greater insight into product usage fuels the optimization of service operations and also drives sustainability efforts through better visibility into KPls. And by enabling better job management and performance, the ThingWorx lloT platform streamlines compliance efforts and improves equipment effectiveness. And this is just the beginning: Vestergaard will set the foundation for continuous improvements and updates, enabling them to grow and innovate into the future.
