Belt loaders and conveyors are essential equipment used in airport ground handling operations to efficiently and safely load and unload baggage and cargo from aircraft. Belt loaders are vehicles equipped with a conveyor belt that can be raised and lowered to match the height of the aircraft cargo hold. They are designed to transport baggage and cargo to and from the aircraft quickly and efficiently. Conveyors, on the other hand, are stationary or mobile machines that can move baggage and cargo from one location to another within the airport, such as from the check-in counter to the aircraft or from the aircraft to the baggage claim area.
