YPN visit Vanderlande 28-05-2015
28 May 2015
Many people will know Vanderlande for supplying luggage transport systems for airports, for example for our own Schiphol airport and Heathrow. It is no surprise that Vanderlande is world leader in this market segment. However, Vanderlande also produces postal sorting systems, for example for UPS and warehousing solutions.
During this interesting afternoon, we had several presentations on recent developments for these transport systems. Especially the handling of consumer products is an upcoming market that receives a lot of development attention.
To say that the tour through the testing center was impressive is an understatement. In a large area, many of Vanderlande's transport systems are build up for testing. These systems are operational 24/7 and our tour took us through the heart of them. In the test room, there are continuous tests of luggage handlers, postal handlers and new systems developed for handling consumer products and groceries.
We concluded with drinks and some nice discussion.
