Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport Satellite Terminal in China has put the baggage handling system (BHS) of logistics automation firm Vanderlande into operation.

Vanderlande also secured a four-year site-based service contract to provide 24/7 on-site upkeep, operations, and IT services at the airport.

The key part of the solution has been deployed in a new satellite expansion to the north of the airport’s Terminal 3, which has the capacity to manage an additional 22 million passengers annually.

In a statement, Vanderlande said: “This is the biggest single project secured to date delivered by Vanderlande in mainland China. The project was completed in just 29 months, working throughout the global pandemic and without impacting on the day-to-day operations in the other terminals.”

The logistics automation company was responsible for the development as well as integration of the complete BHS, which stretches for 20km.

It consists of TUBTRAX individual carrier system (ICS) in the satellite terminal and Terminal 3, along with high-speed TUBTRAX (7m/s) ICS in the tunnel area.
