Automated Container Handling System
The Automated Container Handling System transports ULDs between destinations inside the airport.
The Automated Container Handling System is a fully automatic system for transport of full and empty ULD containers for loading, parking or maintenance. The system is configured as a single loop or as a number of interconnected loops to cover multiple building levels. The wireless controls software communicates in real time with each ULD carrier and the destination. Position and progress of each ULD carrier are tracked real-time to ensure 100% traceability.
Automating the container handling process provides enhanced ULD handling quality by reducing the incident rate (IR) while also increasing productivity and process reliability.
