Changi International Airport Initiates Test Operation of New Automated Baggage Handling Vehicles

Changi Airport Group (CAG) and Trepel International have begun test operations of a new automated baggage handling vehicle.

The latest version of Trepel International’s electric, autonomous driving vehicle ‘Auto-DollyTug’ combines the utility of baggage tractors with the transport capacity of Unit Load Devices (ULDs). It can connect to the aircraft even when other ground support vehicles are in place, thanks to its lateral driving system.

Since February 2022, the initial version has been undergoing test operations in a hot and humid climate with occurrences of squalls. The third-generation vehicle, which is the latest edition, is equipped with an automatic loading function among others.
