BBHS is committed to work towards this ONE
common goal, to bring all involved stakeholders to the table
and act like a spider in the web.
Airlines, Airports and The Ground Handlers generally “talk to each other” but maybe should “speak with each other” in order to corporate more, create synergies, even push borderlines and bring real change to the only remaining area in Aviation and the Airport Industry which remains nearly unchanged in decades.
At the end of the day genuine corporation between Airlines, Airports and Ground Handlers alike will benefit all stakeholders and help reach the ONE goal, to create satisfied Airline customers.
BBHS is committed to work towards this ONE common goal and act like a spider in the web bringing all stakeholders to the table.
Airlines use a combination of own Baggage Handling or Subcontractors for the entire baggage handling process.
The Baggage Handling process relies on SLA Agreements with the Handlers, and involves a number QA Targets, as well as Baggage Sorting Criteria, all to be met by the Baggage Handlers in order to fulfill expectations of the Airline customer.
This however is not made easy with the current way of handling, which has not developed significantly over the last many decades, resulting in severe and very costly long term work environment inflicted bodily injuries.
BBHS provides a unique semi automatic solution helping the Handlers fulfill the SLA’s hence creating satisfied Airlines and not least Airline customers receiving gently handled baggage in time and in prioritized order.
A 95% reduction in manual baggage handling lifting, is achievable with the full implementation of the BBHS System, with reduction of lost, mishandled and damaged baggage, contributing to consequential positive financial results.
Airports constantly spend vast amounts of investments in huge Baggage Handling Systems, where annually millions of pieces of baggage are sorted according to Airline specified criteria. Each piece of baggage is marked according to priority, and then finally ends up at the end of a flight specific departure chute or carousel, however generally in no prioritised order.
A general lack of Data transfer regarding individual baggage “license-plates” results in the fact that the Baggage Handlers manually needs to re-handle, sort and reconcile each individual piece of “sorted” baggage, which often results in baggage being loaded on the Aircraft in a manner which prevents fulfillment of the SLA’s.
The Airport infrastructure is in addition suffering under over stock of GSE Equipment, as all service providers are stocking GSE equipment in order to handle Peak Traffic and this can be drastically reduced with the introduction of the BBHS System.
BBHS provides a unique add-on complementary solution to current Baggage Handling Systems at Airports.
The BBHS System provides an end-to-end efficient baggage handling of every piece of baggage in consolidated and sorted order. BBHS also releases costly space in Baggage Halls, and provides the opportunity to dispatch and receive baggage on the outside of buildings with the BBHS adaptable Consolidation Units.
Ground Handlers are under constant pressure from Airports and Airlines alike, and are constantly on the hunt for efficiency measures, which can help improve their bottom line.
Ground Handlers are struggling to fulfill SLA’s given the prevailing infrastructure and prevailing work environmental conditions in Aircraft and Airports, as many work processes have remained unchanged for decades and does not help in any way to prevent mishandling of personnel and baggage alike.
Bad work environment is a very large cost driver when looking at the overall Baggage Handling Process. And certain large Airlines run up insurance claims on work related injuries on more than USD 100 million annually, and in addition to production loss.
Ground Handlers investment in GSE equipment to handle peak production, leaves large amounts of baggage carts idle for longer periods during a production day, which is also an inefficiency factor and takes up valuable space and pose a potential threat to apron safety.
With the introduction of BBHS, baggage cart numbers can be reduced with between 60 -80 % as BBHS Carts are efficiently in constant movement and generally does not idle.
BBHS drastically improves the baggage handling work environment, as all manual baggage handling is reduced with up to 95%.
Baggage handlers will be transformed in to operators and supervisors adding work place satisfaction, increase baggage-handling efficiency, fulfillment of SLA commitments and hence contribute to a financially healthy bottom line.
