Information for taxi drivers, Taxi companies and their business agents

The Taxi Management System (TMS)

The Taxi Management System is an in-house APCOA system, specifically developed for the management of taxis, which has been running successfully for many years at airports in Scandinavia.
The TMS consists of hardware and software components: on the hardware side, TMS uses barriers, voucher printers and display panels alongside active transponders and corresponding reader units and the software used ensures the optimum flow of traffic and permits the gathering of quality criteria. The software also provides for the control of short-distance journeys and the regulation of pre-booked taxis.
All taxi zones – main holding zone, intermediate holding zone, taxi rank and SXF overflow buffer zone – are integrated within the TMS to guarantee continuous control of all arriving taxis.
