A Case Study

Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 136)


In a world where an unattended suitcase is a threat, baggage handling is a matter not just of convenience, but also of security. Fabricom Airport Systems provides the technology that sorts and screens passenger luggage safely. The company designs and develops online 100% hold baggage screening (HBS) systems and supplies baggage handling systems to regional and international airports around the globe. Over the last 40 years, Fabricom Airport Systems and its subsidiaries have been responsible for designing and implementing over 400 baggage handling solutions, including 80 HBS systems1. In line with corporate restructuring, Fabricom Airport Systems has taken on the new identity of Logan Teleflex. This move recalls brands that have been synonymous throughout the world for high performance and quality baggage handling systems for many years.
