High security trolleys help address US$2m in theft


Norduyn has announced that it will unveil a new range of trolleys for duty-free sales during Aircraft Interiors Expo in April. The difference between this range, and the many trolleys already on the market is – Norduyn says – that it offers enhanced security through features such as track and tracing, and being difficult to steal from. The trolley has been tested by strategic partner Spiriant.

“When we heard that robbery from duty-free trolleys was costing some airlines over US$2m in lost revenue per year, this inspired us to come up with a solution which integrates solid-state construction and technology. Our all-composite trolleys are perfect for integrating radio-frequency identification devices, enabling the track and trace in real time of all duty-free trolleys and their high value content through the airline’s sometimes very complex network” said Patrick Phillips, VP of sales and business development at Norduyn.
