Siemens Logistics Efficient and Flexible Airport Solutions
Siemens Logistics provides logistics solutions for airports and airlines worldwide.
Siemens offers all types of baggage handling with check-in, belt and tray conveyor systems as well as efficient sorting and baggage claim facilities. We combine extensive logistics and software expertise to enhance crucial airport processes. Featured products include VarioTray, our premium high-speed baggage solution for hub airports.
State-of-the-art software systems and a comprehensive range of lifecycle services complement the offering. Complete turnkey terminals, for temporary, interim or permanent use, are Siemens’ special field of expertise.
Complete baggage handling systems
We support operational and functional processes at airports with a comprehensive baggage handling product range that allows airports to operate economically and meet challenging demands.
We offer customised baggage handling systems, including conveyor belts, tilt-tray sorters, as well as fast and efficient tray technology.
VarioBelt is the modular baggage conveyor platform that has been developed to provide the right solution for every need.
Siemens’ VarioSort TTS 1100 tilt-tray sorter is a versatile application for all airport sorting requirements.
VarioTray provides a fast, reliable and efficient solution for international airports. Siemens’ innovative tray technology is fast, cost efficient, accurate, scalable, robust and reliable.
Early bag store is based on a high-bay warehouse, which includes the Lift&Run system that handles incoming and outgoing baggage. The system is highly accurate and much faster and more cost-efficient than comparable solutions.
Baggage make-up and reclaim includes high-performance baggage carousels in a wide variety of configurations. They are easily maintainable through easy access to both the drive and the drive belt.
Additional airport terminal capacity solutions
CapacityPlus is our complete, cost-effective, fast-track airport terminal solution for temporary, interim and permanent passenger peak capacity needs.
Air cargo systems
Innovative automation and digitalisation solutions boost speed and efficiency. Our customers benefit from a complete range of services, from planning, design, installation and commissioning to training, maintenance, upgrades and modernisation throughout a solution’s life cycle.
Cargo Compact software takes everything into consideration. It manages the business processes in the terminal and guides the material flow required for import, export and transit, including build-up and breakdown as core processes.
Software for airport logistics
Our portfolio comprises proven software solutions ready for immediate application. They range from planning, prediction and control (PPC) and analytical resource planning and control via situational awareness dashboards to predictive maintenance. We also offer our customers the option of working together with us to jointly develop innovative applications for their use.
In addition to a reliable and efficient system, quality services are a further major value-adding factor in the total cost of ownership and the fastest possible return on investment. We therefore support the performance of systems over their entire lifetime, including upgrades and modernisation. Services are also available for non-Siemens systems.
