Portr Limited is a technology driven concierge company which has developed a new service, AirPortr™, enabling customers to book luggage transfers between their destination airport and hotel. Portr employs leading-edge technology across its web booking platform and logistics engine. The service is designed to give the customer more time in their day, reduce stress and alleviate the physical burden of travelling to and from the airport with luggage. It will predominantly be targeted at those travelling to the UK on international business and leisure and is planned to launch at London Heathrow Airport in early 2014. The company will have concierge teams and high technology tablet based self-service check-in stations across all terminals, combined with RFiD membership cards and permanent bag tags for frequent travellers, providing a quick and seamless luggage drop and collection process.
The company has developed proprietary technology for a fully-responsive booking platform which is integrated with a specialist airport division of a leading same-day logistics company who will be managing and delivering the white-glove AirPortr™ branded service. Users will be able to access features such as real-time GPS tracking of their luggage and driver profiles ensuring a modern personalised service. The platform will be connected with a number of trade distribution channels through which the service will be promoted including airlines, hotels, travel agents, global concierge companies and a number of public and private transport companies.
Director comment: “I am pleased to announce another technology driven investment in what could be a valuable market opportunity. We understand Portr has received positive responses from potential trade partners with internationally-recognised brands and believe Heathrow is an ideal platform to launch AirPortr™.”http://airportr.com/
