Baggage handling systems are an integral part of any modern airport infrastructure that defines the overall quality offered to the airport customers and the airlines. The optimum handling capacity provisioning at the right time is something what many airports struggle with. Usually the provided capacity lags behind the current demand. Safe, efficient, and reliable handling of the baggage is required to ensure that the passenger and baggage reaches the destination at the same time. IT systems, security systems, and baggage handling systems have to work hand-in-hand to achieve an optimal and cost-efficient handling of the baggages. The technology to load and unload containers is currently being considered whereas Dnata, an air travel service, tends to use semi-automated devices, which are currently under trial.
Regions such as Africa and the Middle East have recorded high success rates in BHS attributed to the continuous improvements by the airlines, which include investments in new baggage equipment, better technology, and training. The rate of baggage mishandling has come down during the review period, benefitting both consumers and airlines alike.
Siemens (Germany), Vanderlande (The Netherlands), Beumer-Crisplant (Germany), Glidepath (New Zealand), Daifuku (Japan), BCS (New Zealand), Pteris Global (Singapore), and G&S Airport Conveyor (U.S.) are the main players for the airport BHS market.
