Luggage transport trolleys from Wanzl have been deployed at over 350 airports worldwide. In May, the Travel 400 model was also rolled out at Terminal 1 of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. Wanzl delivered 2,500 trolleys to Taipei from Germany. The order from Taiwan's largest airport, which is the most important hub for China Airlines, included a further 600 Easy 88 duty-free trolleys, which were manufactured at Wanzl's production site in Shanghai. No sooner had it delivered its first trolleys than Wanzl was selected to supply Terminal 2 and won the follow-up order from Taiwan; a further 2,600 Travel 400 luggage transport trolleys, equipped with a folding bar for extra luggage restraint, and 630 Easy 88 trolleys will be delivered to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport this August/September.
The Travel 400 from Wanzl is a tried-and-tested classic model in use throughout the world. Its key features are its robust, durable design, sturdy luggage support, excellent stability when transporting heavy loads, spacious luggage area, easy handling and good manoeuvrability when nested. These benefits make the Travel 400 an ideal solution for any type of luggage.
Wanzl's Easy 88 model is custom-made for the Asian market; its generous advertising space and basket make this model very popular amongst duty-free shop owners and advertising agents.
The successful Travel 400 model has also won over Korea Airports Corporation (KAC); for more than two years now, Wanzl has delivered 6,000 trolleys with an elegant stainless steel design to Incheon International Airport in the South Korean capital, Seoul, for its luggage transport needs. Wanzl has recently received an order from KAC to supply a further 14 airports in South Korea with a total of 7,275 stainless steel Travel 400 trolleys. This follow-up order takes Wanzl's market share for luggage transport trolleys at South Korea's airports to 100%. Wanzl expects to deliver the trolleys to the customer in August 2015 for use at Jeju, Gimpo, Kimhea, Cheongju, Daegu, Yangyang, Gwangju, Muan, Ulsan, Pohang, Yeosu, Gunsan, Sacheon and Wonju airports. An additional order of 2,000 trolleys has been placed for Jeju airport, serving the holiday island known as the Mallorca of South Korea, making the airport a key transport hub for tourists.
12,300 Travel 400 luggage transport trolleys are currently being manufactured at Wanzl's production site in Kirchheim for a current order from Taiwan and South Korea. "This massive order once again secures Wanzl's position as the global market leader for luggage transport trolleys," said Ralf Aubele, Head of Airport + Security Solutions at Wanzl.
