Transfer Optimisation

Web-based and mobile software solution for the complete interline bag management process

Allowing prioritisation for the efficient control of baggage transfers between inbound and outbound terminals. Our Transfer Optimisation module improves the efficiency and accuracy of baggage movement, vehicle tracking and resource planning, minimising the impact on service levels.

Zafire’s solution utilises industry standard Bag Service (BSM) and Bag Manifest (BMM) Messaging, combined with the latest in mobile technology and web-based, back-office solutions, to deliver critical information to the right people at the right time.

With the total number of scheduled passengers forecast to rise, the need to maintain service levels whilst coping with the increase in capacity remains a key focus of the Aviation industry.

We took the decision...because of its feature richness, its ease of maintenance and...that the Zafire team was responsive and customer focused." - Unisys
