As travelers continue to experience the hassles of lost and mishandled bags, Samsara Luggage plans to unveil the next generation of Samsara Luggage products that will include an IoT tracking solution, offering consumers the most accurate location data for their smart-case and complying with all applicable regulations. This revolutionary tracking technology will be presented at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
This innovative technology was designed to improve the travel experience by providing consumers with a tracking feature that provides the most accurate location data currently on the market. The technology functions in a manner similar to the GPS tracking offered by most ride-hailing companies, and is designed to provide real-time location tracking for a frustration-free consumer experience.
According to Sita, the leading provider of baggage management solutions, 24.8 million bags were “mishandled” in 2018, despite the major airlines’ continued efforts to address this issue. Lost luggage derails travelers and causes unforeseen added costs and loss of time. The Washington Post reported that “When luggage disappears, passengers are often pulled into a baffling world of forms, phone lines with prerecorded messages and endless waits.”
According to Atara Dzikowski, Co-founder and CEO of Samsara Luggage, “Consumers no longer need to rely on tracking methods that only offer estimated location services. Samsara is the first to bring a precise location data technology that complies with all regulations to the smart travel marketplace.”
“Samsara is a unique and visionary company,” says Kathy Ireland, Chair, CEO and Chief Designer of kathy ireland® Worldwide, who joined Samsara’s Board of Advisors in July 2019. “Samsara continues to develop the best travel technology on the market, providing global travelers with a state-of-the-art travel experience. This new and disruptive tracking technology aims to minimize the aggravation and hassle associated with lost luggage, which many travelers experience. As Samsara continues to focus on strategic solutions for the tech-savvy traveler, we look forward to bringing our customers the most cutting-edge, smart, luxury luggage on the market today,” adds Ireland. Earlier this year, MI VI, a brand by kiWW® founded by Kathy Ireland® and Tommy Meharey, entered a licensing partnership Samsara Luggage Inc. to introduce an exclusive collection of smart luggage products designed for the modern traveler.
