Feb 18, 2016: Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) has received an order to further improve security standards at the William P. Hobby Airport in Houston, Texas. As part of this project, Siemens will provide significant enhancements to the Checked Baggage Inspection System (CBIS). This includes replacing three computed tomography (CT) scanners and the addition of a fourth. The project is scheduled for completion by late 2016.
In conjunction with these improved security standards, Siemens will be able to considerably increase the efficiency, baggage throughput and tracking accuracy of the entire system.
In the future, William P. Hobby Airport benefits from a more stable and reliable system and can improve their overall airport operations.
Michael Reichle, CEO of Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics, said, “The order at William P. Hobby Airport in Houston shows that our competency in airport logistics is highly sought after in the USA, the largest airport market in the world.” With some 2.2 million people, Houston is the fourth largest city in the USA, after New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
