Leonardo is the pioneer in crossbelt sorters for baggage handling in airports: Leonardo’s Multisorting Baggage Handling System (MBHS) is, nowadays, the only modern proven solution available based on crossbelt technology. Its full contactless technologies significantly reduce the total cost of ownership for its customers.
Leonardo is one of the few players able to design, implement and install complete turnkey baggage handling systems, with extended experience in brown-field environments including a complete suite of IT components, and can supply a wide range of after-sales services.
The first MBHS installation was in Rome Fiumicino Airport in 2009 and today all baggage in the international hub is managed by Leonardo’s state-of-the-art systems. Excellent installation results have allowed Leonardo’s automation business to expand all over the world, becoming a global player for the supply of turnkey baggage handling systems, with several international success stories in big hubs and in medium size airports (Rome Fiumicino, Paris Orly, Zurich, Genève, Athens, Kuwait City, Lyon, Bale-Mulhouse, London City and other).
