Baggage handling system manufacturers and component suppliers are focusing on increasing their global presence and respective market shares. Vanderlande signed a landmark innovation partnership agreement with Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) to develop and apply its future-proof baggage logistics solution—FLEET—in the real-world environment of one of the world’s busiest passenger airports. The new product developments strategy is ranked 2nd amongst all the strategies adopted by companies in the baggage handling system market. Baggage handling system suppliers are focusing on the development of technology, infrastructure, and components compatible with automated baggage handling. For instance, March 2019, Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) presented its broad portfolio of hardware and software for airports and airlines. From efficiency-enhancing baggage handling systems and cloud-based technologies up to comprehensive service offerings, SPPAL provides a range of solutions and systems to further improve vital airport processes. The innovative SmartTray forms an excellent basis for predictive maintenance of baggage handling systems. Intelligent sensors on different components record measurements and data, which are stored in MindSphere, the open, cloud-based IoT operating system from Siemens.

Vanderlande Industries (Netherlands) is identified as the leading player in the baggage handling system market. The company is one of the established players and a globally renowned supplier of baggage handling systems. The company follows the strategy of new product developments to gain a competitive edge in the baggage handling system market. In September 2020, Vanderlande introduced its new UV-C Tray Disinfection solution, designed to help airports make security checkpoints safer for both passengers and employees. Using short wavelength UV light, the solution is capable of killing and deactivating 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on trays between each use. Disinfecting high-touch surfaces has become a priority for airports as the industry is preparing for air traffic to pick up again. It is well known that the trays used at security checkpoints pose a concern as each bin can be touched by hundreds of passengers every day. Without an automated sanitizing solution, this would result in a significant increase in the need for manual cleaning of trays as well as a decrease in throughput at the checkpoint.
