Heathrow Airport Baggage Handling System

Acting as prime contractor on behalf of Vanderlande Industries we delivered mechanical and electrical installation works on the baggage handling system (Vanderlande Tubtrax® and Bagtrax®) along with Departure and Check-in Conveyors at Heathrow Terminal 5.

The Tubtrax® system is a network of twin belt conveyors, directly linked to the ‘Early Bag-Store’. Baggage is retrieved from and automatically returned to the system to be delivered to the relevant aircraft prior to departure.

Bagtrax® is a high-speed Destination Coded Vehicle System, guided throughout Terminal 5A and 5B, which will eventually link to Terminal 5C.
