Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

Project luggage 70 MB.

Schiphol is at the forefront of the state-of-the-art luggage system 70 MB and is therefore on its way to become one of the most innovative airports in the world. In 2013 the project was initiated in close collaboration with KLM and the implemented programme was fully put into operation. The total investment is 800 million euros.

Luggage System 70 MB

The luggage system is for Schiphol the same as blood circulation for us. 70 MB means 70 million bags. Luggage Schiphol transports suitcases of the passengers from the check in to the place where the respective airline (or handler) takes them over to put them in the plane.

Reford Project Control, subsidiary of Aratis, has had an advisory role in the 70 MB programme within the Schiphol organisation during the period from 2013 to 2016. The responsibilities were:

  • The contract advice on technical solutions and permits

  • Contract control on the application of design choices

  • Safety and escape routes
