Airport logistics defined

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. Airport logistics is responsible for designing and controlling operational service provision processes at an airport.

Lenze's drive and automation solutions for airport logistics are used primarily in baggage and freight logistics.
