Anchorage International baggage system to be enhanced

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) in Alaska has awarded a baggage handling system contract to Logan Teleflex, a subsidiary of Daifuku Webb Holding Company.

The multi-million dollar deal will see a multi-phased project, and is expected to be completed by April 2016, and includes upgrades and modifications to the existing checked baggage inspection system, serving Concourse C and the North Terminal at ANC.

Details of the project include recapitalization of the existing explosive detection system machines to current generation equipment, and upgrades to the baggage handling system.

It also includes expansion of the checked baggage resolution area, and alterations to architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical building systems.

Logan Teleflex has worked with ANC on several long-term projects in previous years.

These include a fully automated in-line baggage handling system (BHS) for Terminal C in 2003, a fully automated in-line BHS for terminal AB in 2010, and a fully automated in-line BHS screening system in 2011 for the North Terminal.

Brian Stewart, general manager of Daifuku's global airport baggage handling, explains: “Our established partnership and collaborative efforts with ANC are aimed to provide a better experience for travellers.

"Our company continues to produce dependable baggage handling solutions that ultimately make travelling easier for passengers flying in and out of ANC."
