Highly efficient barcode and RFID baggage tracking systems
Airlines today need to ensure seamless baggage tracking. A reliable tracking system is essential to prevent baggage losses and misloading. FEIG provides sophisticated RFID and barcode solutions to ensure fast, simple and secure tracking – and highly efficient processes in the aviation industry.
Seamless baggage tracking at all times
According to IATA Resolution 753, airlines are required to track baggage electronically from the time it is checked in at the check-in counter until it is returned to passengers in the arrivals hall. RFID and barcode solutions provide the technological foundation for secure and seamless baggage tracking. Whether during check-in, loading onto an aircraft or transfer to connecting flights, RFID systems make it possible to see at any time which stations the baggage has passed through and when. Tracking data can also be passed on to passengers, providing greater transparency and an improved travel experience.
Ensuring profitable processes
On average, six pieces of luggage are lost per 1,000 passengers. Every year, 26 million bags and suitcases end up having to be delivered to their rightful owners – making localization and repatriation a major cost factor for airlines. This is precisely where RFID systems come into their own. With a tracking accuracy of 99.9 percent and the ability to encode additional information on the tag, lost baggage can be located more quickly and operational costs for processing significantly reduced. Put simply, improving the customer experience and operational efficiency increases profitability.
Easy migration from barcode to RFID
Mobile hybrid readers reliably and flexibly capture barcodes and RFID tags. This means that the transition from a barcode system to modern RFID tracking can be made without having to make changes to the infrastructure, processes or IT. With the ECCO+ and the HyWEAR compact, FEIG ELECTRONIC offers two intuitive readers for mobile use. Both of them ensure rapid scanning and coding during baggage handling in sorting and loading areas. Cost-effective integration and a high degree of operational flexibility with RFID and barcode systems make the mobile hybrid devices an efficient solution.
Stationary solutions enable cost-efficient automation
Stationary readers integrate seamlessly into the existing IT infrastructure and enable the automated scanning of baggage at any point in the baggage handling process. While staff are free to follow their usual routines, the RFID system independently performs all tracking and data handling tasks. Whether gate antenna, mid-range or long-range readers, the FEIG ELECTRONIC portfolio offers the ideal solution for every baggage tracking application. The result is reliable baggage tracking with maximum cost efficiency.
