Tracking luggage comes to handheld devices

23rd Mar 2006

Luggage Forward unveiled its new mobile luggage tracking system. This proprietary tracking functionality allows clients to monitor the real-time status of their shipments using any web-enabled handheld device. Clients simply visit using a compatible wireless device and enter their order number to view the status.

With the recent dramatic increase in lost or late-arriving bags at airports worldwide, Luggage Forward continues to develop new technologies and processes in order to provide travelers a reliable alternative to checking luggage on their flight.

Additionally, Luggage Forward allows clients to enjoy the convenience of traveling without cumbersome luggage or sports equipment.

“While tracking shipments on our website is useful, the relevance and applicability of mobile tracking really takes into account the behaviors of our clients,” said Aaron Kirley, Vice President of Technology at Luggage Forward. “We have literally put the real-time status of their shipment directly in their hands, regardless of where they are around the world.”

Luggage Forward has built a faithful clientele with its on-time delivery guarantee. Giving clients the ability to personally monitor their shipment status in real time provides further peace of mind knowing that their luggage will arrive as scheduled. The launch of this mobile luggage tracking system is the latest application of technology in Luggage Forward’s ongoing effort to provide the highest level of service possible.


Today’s announcement demonstrates Luggage Forward’s commitment to leveraging cutting edge technologies to maintain a leadership position in the emerging luggage forwarding industry. The effort began with the launch of Luggage Forward’s proprietary dynamic online quoting system and will continue in the future with new functionalities currently in development.
