Major Developments in Airfreight and Baggage Handling - Second Generation Mobile Handling Equipment for the Eighties – The Listavia LA. PD. 22. System 801066

This paper deals with the surveys carried out by the author's company during the last three years, on the shortcomings of existing tractor trailer cargo and baggage handling equipment on Airports, the results of those surveys and the criteria so produced for the design of a new method of handling air cargo.
The paper describes in general terms the resulting system, now known as the LA PD 22 roll trailer system, and makes comparisons with the first generation equipment it is intended to replace, and highlights some significant contributions in terms of cost savings, safety and increased efficiency that can be made by using well planned handling methods. Mr. Lister also covers the increased safety aspects of the new system, which is intended to improve the working conditions of baggage and cargo handlers on airport aprons.
