TREPEL Airport Equipment meets the requirements of ground support equipment (GSE) of today's modern airports with a wide product range. With the CHAMP loader family, TREPEL offers cargo loaders with a capacity from 3.5 tons up to 35 tons, completed by a cargo loader-transporter and a container/pallet transporter. The CHALLENGER family of conventional aircraft tractors is capable to handle all commercial as well as military aircraft from the A320 and B737 up to the A380 and the AN225.
With the all-new CHARGER 380, TREPEL has now also a towbarless aircraft tractor. It introduces state-of-the-art features such as anti-collision and obstacle detection, independent hydro-pneumatic front suspension and over-steering/over-torque protection – each of them bringing aircraft towing to the next level of safety and comfort.

As there are many good reasons for electric drive, TREPEL contributes with the electrification of its equipment. More and more models are now also available as e-version.
