BEUMER to install new baggage handling system at Heathrow

Ground Handling
BEUMER Group has won the contract to design and install a state-of-the-art replacement baggage handling system (BHS) for Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 2.

The six-year project is a critical stepping stone to transforming the Central Terminal Area and once complete, the new BHS will be capable of handling 31,000 bags a day.

Based on CrisBag technology and combined with data analytics, it will be designed to deliver 100% tracking and traceability at every stage of the baggage handling process.

Heathrow’s baggage handling systems swiftly sort and scan up to 140,000 departing bags a day as they move between check in and the airfield.

"It is with great pleasure that we have received confirmation that Heathrow has chosen BEUMER Group as the strategic partner for the design and installation of the new baggage handling system in Terminal 2," says Ronald Willems, BEUMER Group Airport Director. 

Heathrow’s Chief Solutions Officer, Helen Elsby, said: "We know our customers want great and reliable journeys and that begins with having world-class facilities. Installing a new dedicated baggage system in Terminal 2 is the next stage in our plans to breathe new life into the beating heart of Heathrow."
