“INTERNATIONAL airlines are looking at radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to help them track food trolleys on flights.
Trolleys cost about $US500 to $US1000 ($770 to $1500) each and airlines lose thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands, of dollars each year in lost or stolen trolleys.
Airlines now have no way of keeping track of them.
A spokesman for in-flight service provider eLSG.SkyChefs said the company was in discussions with worldwide carriers to install partner Scanpak’s Galley Equipment Tracking System (GETS).
The RFID technology has been deployed by Air Canada at 138 North American locations in the past two years.”
