Rotterdam The Hague Airport has begun testing Vanderlande's FLEET baggage handling solution, which uses intelligent autonomous vehicles to transport individual items of luggage instead of traditional belts and conveyors.
Vanderlande has acquired the Canadian software company Optosecurity, a move it claims will further strengthen its position as a market leader for value-added logistic process automation at airports.
Montréal-Trudeau International Airport has awarded a Explosives Detection System (EDS) Retrofit contract for its baggage handling system to Daifuku Airport Technologies (ATec).
Copenhagen Airport is looking to upgrade its baggage handling system by extending two conveyors in a project that will also create an extra 500sqm of space for passengers.
Vanderlande enjoyed a record breaking 2015 in which it took over €1.4 billion in orders – a rise of 40% on the previous year.
