Siemens Logistics will be presenting numerous innovations for improved baggage handling at Passenger Terminal EXPO 2022.

From June 15, trade visitors will have the opportunity to learn all about the company's extensive airport portfolio at the Expo Porte de Versailles exhibition site in Paris.

At its booth in Hall 7.3, Siemens Logistics will be demonstrating Baggage 360, the versatile airport operations software. This application is currently the only solution on the market that features real-time forecasting of baggage flows. Baggage 360 also enables ground handlers to plan their fixed, mobile and personnel resources with maximum efficiency.

This is particularly helpful in managing fluctuating loads or handling transfer connections. Interactive maps representing the movements on the apron offer airport operators the option to visualise their operational workflows virtually using a digital twin and to optimise and control them remotely.

Alongside its software and service solutions, Siemens Logistics will also be bringing two hardware innovations to Paris: VarioBelt TilterPlus and VarioTip.

With the VarioBelt TilterPlus belt conveyor items can be conveyed in three directions: forward, left and right. In this way, VarioBelt TilterPlus allows airport operators to expand their installations on a modular basis with significantly fewer machines and a smaller footprint.

VarioTip from Siemens Logistics ensures a constantly high baggage throughput. The automated ULD unloading solution can empty up to 20 ULDs in the arrival and transfer areas and process circa 800 bags per hour. Also, ground handlers can increase the degree of automation of their baggage handling processes while minimising the need for manual intervention – for more ergonomic working during ground handling operations.
