Babcock provides integrated airport solutions which help to keep passengers moving and flights on schedule. From designing, installing and managing complex baggage handling systems, to fleet management and engineering support for specialist ground support vehicles, our customers know they can trust us to deliver.
Baggage Handling Systems
As a systems integrator we work in close partnership with our customers to ensure their needs are fully met. We achieve this through providing best in class process engineered solutions, based on the most appropriate range of equipment, either supplied by the Babcock product portfolio or other specialist equipment providers.
Babcock uses its unrivalled baggage processing and operational knowledge, together with its specialist engineering skills in automated handling and control systems development, to deliver the optimum through-life performance in terms of cost, efficiency and reliability.
We employ over 900 skilled personnel with experience in baggage system design, control systems development, operations, maintenance and general airport-based baggage services. These unique skills and experience ensure that Babcock is recognised as an industry sector leader in the provision of through-life integrated solutions to airport baggage handling and management requirements.
Babcock works in partnership with customers to ensure that their fleet of vehicles and specialist equipment is available 24 hours a day, every day.
As fleet management specialists, we specify and buy a range of ground support equipment on our customer's behalf, standardising the range of vehicles utilised and consolidating buying power. This approach means vehicles cost less to buy, maintain and operate.
Our bespoke solution optimises the use of assets, delivers value for money and enables our customers to focus on meeting their day to day operational requirements.
Through comprehensive fleet management contracts with British Airways and BAA, we manage and maintain over 3,000 assets - ranging from passenger buses and scissor lifts, to 70-tonne aircraft pushback tractors - ensuring they are available when and where they are needed.
Maintenance of the fleet is provided by Babcock at airside workshops at Heathrow, Gatwick, and Edinburgh where our skilled engineers provide preventative maintenance and scheduled repairs.
