Trvl Porter

Innovative start-up Trvl Porter was among finalists at Travel Tech Con and awarded prize by XXL Solutions

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED STATES - July 19th, 2018 - Trvl Porter is a company transforming the way that people travel by eliminating luggage and lending a personalized, pre-styled wardrobe awaiting travelers at their destination. It was selected among the 15 finalists from 100 plus startup companies and subsequently pitched at the Travel Tech Con event in San Francisco, June 2018. It was awarded a prize for startup and growth support by the renowned global aviation and travel consultancy XXL Solutions.

Stefanie Nissen, Founder & CEO at Trvl Porter is honored to receive this recognition in this critical growth period. “The opportunity to present our business model to the travel industry was crucial for validating that our concept has real potential to succeed. The future of mobility is changing and that will also change the way you travel. Our service is one that already addresses the changes.”

Luggage has become a key revenue stream for airlines, yet it remains a key pain point at the same time. Whilst there are trends towards self-tagging or check in from home it causes stressful moments to prepare and a lot of additional wasted time in check-in queues and at conveyor belts at arrival - apart from ever-increasing cost. And in case of luggage mishandling, processes do prove a nightmare for customers and airline staff alike.

Delta Airlines spent $50 million on tech in 2016 that promised to more efficiently route checked luggage to its destination, via RFID tracking or radio frequency identification. But can RFID really solve one of the most annoying things about air travel? A mishandled piece of luggage costs an airline about $100 per bag.

There is also a trend that given the high luggage fees customers check in less and less luggage. Yet airlines keep counting on luggage fees as a key income, which is a dangerous game to play given alternatives such as Trvl Porter on the horizon.

If you calculate the cost of luggage in terms of fuel cost, a 35 lb suitcase will lead to about $18 cost (details see here). The real fees for booking such a suitcase are much higher.  In terms of carbon footprint, there is an additional 1 lb carbon emission cost per pound of airplane weight of approximately 1,000 miles of flight distance.

So it seems to be really worthwhile to think about each piece of clothing to take with you on a flight. Trvl Porter could be the ideal solution not only for stress reduction and an improved customer experience, but also for sustainability.

“Customers expect continuous enhancements to their travel experience. The personal style concierge coupled with the fact that your wardrobe will be waiting for you at your destination instead of having to waste time and effort preparing your luggage is great opportunity to add some magic back to the travel experience. XXL Solutions is proud to support this innovative startup team.”
