Check-in, sit back and relax – at the railway station
Baggage movement from rail stations to airports and vice versa remains a hassle for passengers. Even with today's advanced technology, they still have to manually transport their bags from the airport railway station to the check-in counter. Furthermore, the inconvenience of carrying heavy bags onto packed trains and the constant worry that bags may be misplaced or damaged in transit causes unnecessary stress.
That is why Siemens developed Sibag Train, a baggage-handling system that automates the transfer of bags between air and rail travel. By connecting check-ins, conveyors, carousels and container handling equipment at railway stations, trains and airports, Sibag Train automates the transfer of bags from the central railway station directly to travelers' flights and vice versa.
Upon landing, passengers can choose to reclaim their bags either at the airport or at the railway station. This has the dual benefit of freeing up capacity at airport check-in counters and allowing passengers to enjoy a relaxed and hassle-free travel experience, from the start to the end of their journey.
To ensure a smooth travel experience, it is important that infrastructure and vehicles work in tandem. Due to our proven expertise in system integrations, Siemens is your ideal partner for combined systems.
