How can your checkpoint reach its full potential?
Generate a steady passenger flow with advanced lane design and screening technology
The key to keeping the length of queues under control is a checkpoint designed to handle growing volumes of predicted peak numbers and deliver an effective overall screening process.
In order to identify and target the bottlenecks, the latest advances in checkpoint concepts and design generally break the process down into steps. Once any choke points have been eliminated, the system keeps moving and becomes more efficient. Proficient screening, for instance, increases throughput and cuts the number of required secondary checks; but screening equipment must receive a steady flow of trays to realise the operational benefits. Recent lane innovations address the key issues of passenger divestment; tray loading and return; re-routing suspicious items; and ‘reclaim’ space at the end of the checkpoint.
