Baggage Handling Systems (BHS)
Baggage handling systems require high speed, cost efficiency, maximum safety, energy efficiency, and economy. Baggage handling systems must be particularly flexible, and of tremendous speed in order to increase the efficiency of baggage handling and ensure good service for passengers.
Cargo Handling Systems (CHS)
Storage and retrieval vehicles (ETV/SRU) and transfer vehicles are used in the cargo handling sector. They store and retrieve Unit Load Devices (ULD) capacities with payloads of up to 12t. Horizontal conveyor technologies, such as roller conveyors or corner transfer units are used for the transportation of goods and are further used in the context of the storage and retrieval process.
The term airport logistics covers all tasks associated with the transport of goods at the airport. This includes ground handling - when goods (e.g. baggage) are transported to the relevant airport destination in a flexible manner, while always taking into account their condition. Airport logistics play a central role in the competitiveness of airlines.
Lenze's drive and automation solutions for airport logistics are used primarily in baggage and freight logistics.
