Siemens Logistics optimizes baggage handling at Munich Airport with VarioTip

Siemens Logistics has tested the innovative VarioTip for the automated unloading of baggage from ULDs during live operation at Munich Airport, Germany. In late 2021, the technology was integrated as part of a pilot project into an existing baggage handling system in the Terminal 2 arrivals zone – where it achieved an extremely high automatic ULD unloading rate of around 99 percent.
