How Dallas Love Field Airport improved its checked baggage resolution area by investing in RFID tracking from SICK
Dallas Love Field (DAL) airport was having issues with congestion in its Checked Baggage Resolution Area (CBRA). In late 2018, they implemented an $8.8 million renovation to help. This renovation included infrastructure for a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system that enables airport employees to track baggage as it moves through the airport. This new system requires much less human involvement and mishandling of bags has reduced substantially by using RFID. By controlled testing, read rates for RFID tags can exceed 99%, while rates for barcode reading range from 93% to 97%, depending on the technology used.
