    These hi-tech products have brought the company into a  new industry sector. With our partners UPM and NXP, who are well known leaders within the RFID market, we have developed a baggage tag with an integrated RFID chip in order to gain following advantages:

    • Massively reduced costs due to less lost luggage
    • Satisfied passengers due to faster check-in and less lost luggage
    • Less delays due to faster luggage handling at the airport

    Cargo RFID Labels allow the shipper / addressee to trace the goods anywhere in the world. The huge advantage of this technology is that you are able to store a lot of information on the chip. Furthermore, it is safer and more resistant than the usual barcode.

    Bartsch provides all different kinds of cards with or without magnetic stripe several chip and high quality print.

    Due to our constant monitoring of the market and our extensive experience we have developed the most important self service products for your passengers, boarding passes and baggage tags.

    We provide all kinds of boarding passes on rolls, narrow or wide and, most importantly, for all types of self-service kiosks. Additionally, we developed an easy applicable self-service baggage tag with one of the leading airlines on the planet. This tag allows the passengers to check-in their luggage quickly and get it back safely.

    Of course, this tag is accredited by the newest IATA resolution. Self-Service gives the passenger the benefit of saving time and the airport or airline of saving money.
