SCHIPHOL, 8th January 2019 – Bagpoint, a highly convenient and secure door-to-door luggage delivery service provider and bagchain®, a communication and a leading mobile baggage check-in/print solution provider, today announced a strategic partnership. The partnership sees the development of an off-airport self-service bag drop solution which Bagpoint will launch this year.
The Bagpoint off-airport bag drop solution forms an important part of its door-to-door luggage delivery service offering and allows passengers to check-in and drop-off their bags remotely at hotels, cruise ships, cruise ports, convention centers and other local “hubs”.
With the Bagpoint off-airport bag drop solution luggage items will be weighed, checked-in, labelled and securely transported to the airport, where Bagpoint will inject the checked bags directly into the baggage handling system of the airport. The new innovative service allows passengers to skip the waiting lines at the airport baggage check-in and proceed directly towards security saving up to 60 minutes of waiting time. Travelling with only carry-on luggage, passengers can now make the most of their day. Also, taking public transport towards the airport is now easier than ever.
bagchain has a cloud-based (bagchain cloud) messaging solution that allows airlines and airports to exchange messages and connect DCS’s (Departure Control Systems). This is the easiest, quickest, cheapest and one single connection message solution available today. The bagchain mobile baggage check-in and print products are using the bagchain cloud. The biggest advantage is customers can place the bagchain products anywhere and it operates independently from the current (expensive) airport environment. Once an airline is connected, they can use the bagchain solutions world-wide. This guarantees a faster time to market, no certifications needed and there are no additional costs.
With this strategic partnership both companies will enter the market of remote bag drop solutions for travelers. The combined ecosystems are covering all touchpoints securely end-to-end. Both companies are building towards an excellent blueprint which is to be rolled-out world-wide.
