San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has awarded Beumer Corporation with a design and build contract for a new common-use individual carrier system (ICS) for baggage handling as part of the Terminal 1 Redevelopment Program. This is the first tote-based baggage handling system to go into operation in a US airport.

The design-build teams will take the airport’s Development Plan for the baggage handling system through design and construction. Using an iterative design process, the teams will develop and implement a tote-based system solution that meets the requirements of the airport and all other stakeholders.

This is the first time in the USA that a baggage handling system provider has been invited to participate in the programing phase of a baggage handling project. Beumer Group’s role will be to help to recommend the system components that should be used at each stage of the baggage handling process.
