Future-proof end-to-end-baggage logistics

Vanderlande’s comprehensive approach to baggage processes can be seen in BAGFLOW. It is a scalable, modular and innovative concept that integrates the complete journey of a bag. By establishing an integrated approach to the total process – from the bag drop right through to the aircraft – BAGFLOW guarantees success for airports, airlines and passengers. It creates a stable and resilient baggage flow that handles more bags in the same footprint, optimises resources, and keeps costs under control. In addition, BAGFLOW uses the precise level of automation required, facilitates a ‘pull’ approach, and integrates the complete baggage flow in one control system.
