BEUMER Group UK, part of BEUMER Group, a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling systems, has been awarded a major contract by Manchester Airports Group (MAG) to significantly upgrade the Baggage Handling System (BHS) at London Stansted Airport, UK.
The upgrade utilises the BEUMER autover® independent carrier system (ICS), known for its one-bag-per-carrier/tote efficient design that increases traceability and security at every stage of the handling process. The design of the new BHS is easily scalable and allows for any future expansions to London Stansted Airport.
The new BEUMER autover® system, in addition to the integration of new ECAC 3 compliant Explosive Detection System (EDS) machines for Hold Baggage Screening (HBS), will enable the airport to comply with the latest regulatory guidance on European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Standard 3 and guidance from the Department for Transport (DfT).
Peter Gilks, Managing Director, Airports Division, BEUMER Group UK says, “The process of complying with ECAC Standard 3 is an opportunity to transform the BHS to deliver increased efficiency and performance. Using BEUMER Group’s proven Standard 3 compliance methodology helps to offset, and partly compensate for, additional BHS costs through greater efficiency.”
Numerous major airports worldwide are also working with BEUMER to transform essential regulatory baggage handling system compliance into an opportunity to improve efficiency.
