Scriptwriting for video animation about just-in-time processes
Heathrow has invested in new infrastructure on a huge scale. Some elements, such as Terminal 2, you can see; others are hidden from view. A new airport-wide baggage system is one of those behind-the-scenes changes that sped up the flow of bags and improved the reliability of baggage handling.
