Home / News & Insights / Vanderlande’s FLEET wins prestigious award at inter airport Europe

Vanderlande’s FLEET has been elected winner of the 2017 inter airport Europe Innovation Award in the interTERMINAL category. The company’s flexible baggage logistics solution based on automated guided vehicles (AGV) won the prize, seeing off strong competition to secure the accolade.

The inter airport Europe awards acknowledge the aviation industry’s best recent innovations, products and equipment, with the interTERMINAL category representing terminal operations, infrastructure and technical installations. The announcement confirms Vanderlande’s commitment to creating further business opportunities for airlines and airports.

Vanderlande’s FLEET utilises AGV technology, which replaces the need for fixed conveyors and sorting systems. Each individual vehicle carries a single bag and determines its route through an airport. Owing to its design and configuration, FLEET is scalable, flexible and resilient.

The award was voted for by the international airport community, and Vanderlande was formally presented with the first prize during the Opening and Awards Ceremony, which took place on the morning of 10 October.

Visitors to the exhibition, which runs until 13 October, can see a live demonstration of FLEET at booth 1030 (Hall A5), one of Vanderlande’s two stands. At booth 286 (Hall A6), the company is also showcasing its latest innovations in Advanced Passenger Checkpoint (APC) solutions.
