Baggage Storage and batch building systems

The design of an efficient baggage storage system can fulfill operational baggage system performance requirements beyond just allowing passengers' bags to be checked in hours before flight time. Today's baggage storage and batch building systems also have the ability to support dynamic storage operation, efficient management of baggage peak volumes, and optimum usage of the baggage make-up area and resources.

optimising your baggage storage and batch building solution

Selecting the ideal baggage storage system involves considering various operational factors beyond mere capacity.

By integrating multi-storage functionalities, our baggage storage systems can enhance BHS efficiency in handling both baggage transfer and outbound baggage, leading to operational cost savings and improved staff and equipment utilisation.

With no two airport requirements being the same, it’s essential to assess factors like baggage handling capacity, peak volumes, and terminal space to determine the most suitable baggage storage design and technology. This tailored approach ensures that the baggage storage solution aligns seamlessly with the specific needs of the airport.


Baggage storage solution for every type of airport

A well-designed baggage storage function can integrate with most baggage handling system technologies. There are a number of solutions for integrating a baggage storage system and depending on the system size and airport and airline requirements, the baggage storage can be designed to integrate various baggage handling services and solutions from a simple Early Bag Storage (EBS) to a dynamic storage solution enabling batch building operationin the make-up process.

Baggage storage solutions vary from conveyor based Early Baggage Storage (EBS) systems that simply allow passengers’ bags to be checked in hours before flight time, to more dynamic storage solutions, sometimes referred to as warehouse or baggage hotel solutions. Rack storage designs such as the CrisStore®, make it possible to build batches of bags inside the storage and release a desired number of bags for make-up in an automated speed loading process.

Line-based storage in totes is another type of ‘one bag per tote’ storage configuration that also enables the identity and position of each item of baggage to be tracked and retrieved at all times within the EBS system.

Conveyor Based Storage Solution

Checked baggage can be temporarily stored on conveyor belt lines as a simple and economical solution to buffering early baggage. A conveyor-based storage solution design can offer optimised use of the BHS while also offering better passenger service.

Early Bags on Conveyor Lanes

By use of a simple yet effective conveyor-based storage solution, a baggage handling system design can have more efficiency – and the airport can offer a more satisfying passenger experience. The conveyor-based EBS solution can easily integrate with a convey-based or a high-speed baggage handling and sortation technology.

When used in conveyor and loop sortation systems, bags are usually stored in conveyor lanes until ready for make-up. In a cart-based sortation solutions, bags will be stored on conveyor EBS lines or remain in their assigned carts between screening and make-up if the system design and capacity allows it.
