Reliable handling and transportation of baggage items

Airports where hundreds of airplanes take off and land around the clock require perfect planning and coordination – and the tailor-made drive technology to process thousands of passengers and their baggage securely, every day.

The growing focus on capacity and security issues, as well as shorter ground times, are presenting major challenges for the airport industry. Increasing competition among airports and stricter environmental regulations make the situation even more difficult.

All of this means that in the future, airport operators will be expected to be able to transport passengers and their baggage even more quickly and efficiently. One contributing factor will be the ability to keep airplane downtimes as short as possible.
