28 September, 2018. Domodedovo, Moscow region. Moscow Domodedovo airport and Vanderlande finished the testing period of BAGSTORE - the automated system for early check-in baggage storage. It’s the first airport in Russia to use Vanderlande’s robotic automated complex for storage and baggage retrieval.

Vanderlande’s BAGSTORE has been installed in T2, the new segment of the passenger terminal at Domodedovo Airport. The system consists of 7 racks with three-meter height each, resulting in 1100 storage positions.

Six robots move between them on a special rails at a speed of 14 km/h to retrieve individual pieces of baggage from the storage and to put it back in the ABHS. Intelligent software allows to control all stages of travel bags in ABHS. Every baggage item is delivered on a TUBTRAX carrier – an individual carrier systems (ICS) that is designed to transport bags in carriers at high speeds over long distances. Bags loaded in carriers are transported smoothly and combine high capacity with faultless tracking.
