Fully automated in new Chinese airport
Lödige Industries has installed a new air cargo terminal at Chengdu Tianfu airport (TFU), which has become one of the largest in the world since it opened a year ago (1.3 million t of cargo and mail). The core of the new facility consists of two elevating transfer vehicles with a five-level, three-directional automated ULD storage and handling system for 227 20 ft storage positions.
In addition to the international cargo terminal, Lödige also supplied Sichuan Airport Group with state-of-the-art equipment for TFU's domestic cargo terminal as well as a special warehouse for hazardous goods, an express distribution centre and an international export goods supervision warehouse. In total, the contract provides ULD and pallet handling equipment for more than 83,000 sqm of cargo facilities. (ah)
