This work was part of a larger capacity study of LHR Terminal 5 Arrivals Reclaims to understand whether the capacity of Arrivals Hall could be increased. By enlarging the existing carousels to meet the prospect of increasing capacity demands, we began to analyse the storage of baggage trollies between reclaims, as a way of increasing capacity. With the maximum stock of trollies in arrivals at the beginning of the day, it was difficult to introduce additional capacity without impact on either space or trolley demand. Increasing capacity would decrease space for trollies when demand for them would obviously be higher.
