A new baggage handling system from Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) has been commissioned for the grand opening of Terminal 2 (T2) at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN) in China. To save airport floor space, Siemens installed a fully suspended early bag store (EBS) at Guangzhou that is claimed to be the largest EBS anywhere in China, offering storage space for 4,000 bags and with a peak throughput of almost 15,500 bags/hr. The airport has also elected to used Siemens’ latest VarioTray offering to transport and sort baggage, and in the departure hall, over 340 modern check-in desks equipped with automated baggage scanners await travellers. Michael Reichle, CEO of SPPAL, said: “With our expert local team and great support from the customer, we managed to implement the baggage handling system in Guangzhou in less than two years – that’s a record time.”
