Case study: How Bergen Airport improved efficiency with pull-based BHS 

In 2017, a new terminal was opened at Bergen Airport in Western Norway. The airport wanted a baggage handling solution that could deliver the highest levels of operational and environmental efficiency for its new terminal. To achieve these aims, Bergen Airport installed one of the world's first 'pull-based' baggage handling systems. 

Pulling baggage into the future

This case study analyses the features behind Bergen Airport’s ‘pull-based’ BHS: its automated self bag drop; its sortation with in-tote ECAC Standard 3 security screening; and its storage setup with automated baggage retrieval for make-up.

Learn how Bergen Airport designed a baggage handling system for the future, that:

  • Minimises energy consumption
  • Achieves a compact footprint
  • Reduces maintenance costs, enabling lower operational expenditure
  • Is flexible and scalable for efficiency 
  • Provides operational transparency through data analytics

In reading this case study, you’ll get an insider view of how a ‘green airport project’ produced a superior baggage handling system made for energy savings, efficiency and flexibility.
