Moving, loading and unloading baggage

Airport baggage handling systems enable efficient moving, loading and unloading of baggage between chutes, open carts and conveyors.

Lifting baggage at airport terminal

Handling checked in baggage

At many airports, the checked in baggage is conveyed and automatically dropped to chutes by the airport’s sorting system. The baggage then needs to be moved from the chutes to carts which will be used for transporting the baggage to the airplanes. The area where baggage is moved from chutes to carts usually is characterized by low headroom and sometimes also limited working space.

For departure at ports, the baggage is usually loaded from a conveyer belt onto open carts which are then transported to the cruise ship.

Unloading airplanes or cruise ships

When unloading airplanes as well as cruise ships, the baggage is usually loaded onto carts that will be used for transporting the baggage to the arrival terminal. The unloading of baggage from carts to conveyors or carousels is characterized by a fast work pace.
