Lödige Industries has been awarded a contract to supply a new dnata cargo terminal at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
The move to the new terminal building was prompted by construction activities in Schiphol to improve the airport’s infrastructure, dnata reports. The building is scheduled to be commissioned in 2024 and was designed by Schiphol Commercial Real Estate and designed by architectural firm DP6.
The building will be equipped by Lödige Industries with a fully automated system to “ensure future growth,” Dnata said.
The terminal uses two separate automatic storage and output (ASRS) systems with twelve stacker cranes for import and export, and 2,500 pallets can be stored. Additional storage up to 700 ULD is serviced by four hoisting vehicles (ETV). To ensure flexible and scalable ULD transportation at the terminal, dnata said it would also deploy seven intelligent automated driving vehicles (AGVs) developed by Lödige Industries to be used for the first time on a large scale.
Smart gates will be another feature. They automatically record the volume and weight of all incoming shipments using 3D scanning and significantly speed up processing. A comprehensive high-performance warehouse management system that integrates all elements will allow dnata to further expand its operations and services at Schiphol, the company said.
“We are pleased to increase our operations through major investments at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport,” said Jan van Anroy, head of dnata in the Netherlands. “Our new terminal, equipped with the latest technology, allows us to significantly expand supply and meet the increased demand for our services. It will also help us to continuously ensure the perfection of service to our customers, ensuring the highest level of safety and quality at every stage of the processing process. We look forward to working with Lödige Industries, a strong partner who shares our passion for innovation. ”
Arthur van Brink, Managing Director of Lödige Industries Benelux, commented: “We are very proud of this new order from dnata, with which we have worked very successfully in the past. The new terminal will put Dnata at the forefront of modern air freight. In the initial stages, our team worked very closely with the architects to ensure that the new terminal could take full advantage of our high-tech automation solutions and support dnata in its growth plans. ”
