Jervis B Webb has received a contract from the Columbus Regional Airport Authority to develop and install an in-line baggage handling system at Port Columbus International Airport in the US.
Webb will develop a combined safety screening and explosives detection system and an automated in-line baggage handling system by November 2011.
The new system will replace the explosive detection system machines, which are currently located in the airport ticket lobby.
After the installation, screening will take place in a newly constructed building, where Webb’s system will transfer checked bags for inspection.
The inspected bags will be delivered to a baggage makeup room, where they will be sorted to destinations based on bar-coded baggage tags.
The contract amount is $14m, according to crainsdetroit.com.
