The CrisBag® tote-based independent carrier system (ICS) for fully automated baggage handling delivers 100% tracking and traceability at every stage of the baggage system process.

Designed for high speed and long distances

Individual Carrier Systems (ICS), like the CrisBag, can be designed to transport bags in carriers at high speeds over long distances. Efficient storge of early baggage or baggage for batch building is also no problem.

The combination of intelligent BHS design and ability to optimise the daily baggage operation means that modern airports use this type of modular system to deliver a lower handling cost per passenger/bag.

The use of TSA and ECAC3-certified in-tote screening of hold baggage adds an extra layer of baggage tracking and security, in addition to higher operational efficiency.

The CrisBag system is tailor-made for the airport’s individual requirements and the modularity of the design offers a powerful scaling ability for growing airport operations.



  • Fast, safe and flexible baggage handling from check-in to discharge
  • 100% accurate track-and-trace of baggage at every stage of the handling process
  • Ultra-low energy consumption and maintenance cost
  • Compact and custom configuration for each airport using standard modules
  • No more bag jams due to straps or other bag specifics
  • Complies with TSA regulations and IATA 753

Baggage storage with CrisBag®

Line based baggage storage | Airport baggage handling

An automated baggage storage can improve the overall efficiency of a baggage handling system and secure a steady flow of baggage.

No matter the type of storage, an early baggage (EBS) or a dynamic baggage storage (DBS), the storage will function as a baggage warehouse/hotel for long time storage and/or for batch building purposes.

A baggage storage will be designed to make best possible use of the airport building space and the specific needs for baggage handling capacity. The baggage storage can be a system with baggage stored in lanes, or a more dynamic rack-based storage based on the CrisStore® system, which paves the way for an efficient make-up operation with batch building and speed loading of baggage to optimise space and make better use of the airport’s make-up area.


  • Dense packing in line configuration saves floor space
  • Batch-building for speed loading
  • Low storage cost per bag
  • High-speed storage and retrieval
  • Easy access for bag clearance and maintenance
