At Passenger Terminal EXPO, Beumer Group will showcase the latest features of its CrisBag with integration to data analytics.
The implementation of the world’s first individual carrier system (ICS) for baggage handling has just celebrated its 50th anniversary. Its deployment in big and small airports around the world has always been in response to particular challenges.
San Francisco Airport (SFO) in California, for example, was looking for a green option when deciding on an ICS for its new Harvey Milk Terminal. Alongside this, 100% baggage tracking ability was essential. SFO was mindful of passenger satisfaction and wanted a baggage handling system (BHS) that could deliver bags on arrival in the shortest time possible. Low operational costs and a quick return on investment (ROI) factored into the airport’s decision regarding ICS technology, and SFO has reduced system time for arrival bags to as little as four and a half minutes. The ICS, Beumer Group’s renowned CrisBag technology, also received TSA approval for an improved CEBRA operation. Since the integration of the CrisBag ICS technology, SFO is now the first airport terminal in the world to earn Platinum certification in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) v4 2014 program.
