According to a recent purchasing study conducted by Ground Support Worldwide, more than 75 percent of those surveyed intended to either keep their 2017 ground support equipment budget the same as the previous year or spend more on GSE than they did in 2016.
In fact, roughly 39 percent of the survey’s participants planned to increase their 2017 GSE budget. Only 22 percent of those surveyed planned to spend less on GSE in 2017.
There are several factors to consider when planning your ground support equipment budget.
How many stations are being operated? What work is required at each location? Has business increased or decreased from the previous year? Is equipment being purchased or leased? Is that equipment new or used?
Consider these questions when determining if an increase or decrease in the GSE budget is necessary. Are there other questions you like to ask before making your budget decisions? Comment below to share your thoughts.
