Dublin Test Bag rental simplifies logistics for Brock Solutions

02 April 2019

Brock Solutions have been working on a baggage handling solution at Dublin Airport and needed a supply of Test Bags that could be used to prove that all aspects of the newly installed sort control system met the Dublin functional requirements before handover to airport operations.

Kristof Dorgai, Brock Solution’s Project Manager takes up the story: “The need for Baggage testing is often not considered until the last minute, but we chose to factor it in early to avoid any unnecessary delays. We worked closely with Test Bag Specialist CHS Engineering Services and chose to rent in the specific test bags that we needed for this project.  CHS worked constructively with us to deliver a variety of bags including Specialist HBS/EDS “Reject Bags”, Volume Test Bags, as well as OOG Items. They assisted us by delivering in the middle of the night to avoid disruption and then collected the bags again a month later in the early hours of the morning when we were finished testing.  The process was not without its challenges; however I am very pleased with the 24x7 support provided by CHS.”

Peter Mutton of CHS commented, “Many airports and system Integrators only have short-term test bag requirements coupled with an acute shortage of storage space. The rental of test bags means that long-term bag storage is eliminated and the cost of testing is reduced. It was a pleasure doing business with Brock Solutions, they had a clear idea of what they needed and we were able to come up with an appropriate and cost-effective package for them, we are delighted that the Dublin project went well!”
