Travel blogger Jeb Brooks went behind the scenes at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to see what happens to checked luggage after it leaves the passenger. Jeb visited the Delta Air Lines hub where he had a chance to see how cargo is loaded into a Boeing 757 with a Power Stow Rollertrack Conveyor.

Currently 30 Power Stow extendable belt loaders support Delta´s ground handling operations at ATL, which is the carrier’s (and the world’s) biggest hub. Atlanta airport averages 275,000 passengers and 2,700 arrivals and departures a day. As many as 80,000 to 100,000 bags flow through the baggage system at the airport each day.

Watch Jeb´s video to see how the ramp supports this volume of effort.
