Vanderlande Secures Orders Worth More Than €200 Million
Vanderlande has confirmed that it recently has secured orders of more than €200 million, for its integrated solutions in the baggage handling and parcel and postal sectors.
The deal brings the total order intake to €1 billion for the 2015 financial year.
These new contracts are above the budget forecast and highlight how the company is succeeding in offering a market-leading range of innovative systems, intelligent software and life-cycle services worldwide.
The latest significant orders have been agreed with some of the world’s largest airports, such as Changi Airport Group (CAG), which has selected Vanderlande as the baggage handling supplier for the Terminal 1 Redevelopment project at Singapore Changi Airport. The decision is a significant landmark in its history, as this is the company’s largest-ever baggage handling contract in the Asian market.
Vanderlande’s [email protected] will also be installed in the Terminal 3 Integrated Baggage facility at London Heathrow Airport, forming an integral part of one of the world’s most complex and technologically-advanced baggage handling systems. This highly flexible loading aid solution takes the heavy lifting out of packing containers (ULDs) and carts to optimise productivity and minimise the operators’ physical workload.
A significant order from Deutsche Post DHL has also been made with a frame agreement for the supply of the sorting and logistics handling systems for its new network of parcel delivery bases throughout Germany. This and other investments have been driven by the growth of e-commerce and consumer demand for excellent service, and faster and more reliable deliveries.
Goof Hamers, Vanderlande’s CEO, commented: “These valuable new orders are confirmation of Vanderlande’s excellent track record for reliability, commitment and long-term business relationships. These partnerships have been driven by the need of our international customers to increase efficiency and reduce costs, and our reputation for in-depth knowledge and experience of their businesses.
“Our aim is to provide them with value-added automated material handling solutions, all tailored to meet their specific needs. An innovative and sustainable range of integrated products and services ensures that Vanderlande’s customers have the capability to earn more from our systems and be more competitive.”
