Based on the agreement, SPPAL will contribute among others its reliable and efficient conveyor technologies and baggage handling solutions, and Gaussin is bringing its innovative automated vehicles to the table.
“In combination with our expertise in baggage and cargo handling systems, this cooperation will lead to even greater operational efficiencies and benefits for our customers,” said Michael Reichle, CEO of Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics.
“At the same time, Siemens takes a further step in developing its integrated Aviation 4.0 portfolio.”
