Ranked as Europe’s fourth largest airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol processes more than 50 million passengers a year and more than 130,000 tons of cargo per month. With an annual expected growth in passengers of approximately 5 percent, but no anticipated increases to its more than 400 border guards, airport executives were all too aware of the need to achieve speed and mobility while enhancing security and safety for travelers and trade.
Seeking a solution that provided self-service border control, Amsterdam’s Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, the Royal Military Police and the Schiphol Group approached Accenture to launch a trial automated border control system at Schiphol airport.
