A true case study: Lars in Australia and his backpack in New York.
Meet Lars. Lars is a real bon vivant. His dream, in addition to working at CAPE Groep, was to make a backpacking trip through Australia. After obtaining his master’s degree, the time has finally come, his journey could begin! Unfortunately, the Covid pandemic blocked his plans and he had to postpone his trip.
-------- Two years later -------
At last, normal life began to start up again and his planned trip to Australia could continue. Lars had already worked his way up as a real consultant at CAPE, but was able to take a sabbatical to fulfil his dream. His flight to Australia was booked and his backpack packed. Ready to go!
The journey to Australia started great. Checking in his backpack at the airport went without a hitch and he made it through security without any delay. Once he arrived at Qatar for the stopover to his final destination, the trouble began. The flight to Australia was cancelled and he had to wait at the airport for 18 hours. Nothing could spoil the fun, because Australia was in sight.
-------- A day later -------
Once in Australia he went to the baggage pickup to collect his backpack, unfortunately it never came. After 3 hours of waiting he came to the conclusion that his backpack was lost. It turned out that his backpack had been left behind in Qatar and put on the wrong flight to New York. Getting his backpack back could take a week. Since Lars was not staying at the same location for than 1 to 2 days, he was not able to provide the airport with a shipping address for his backpack. In addition, mobile accessibility is limited in the outback. Lars wants his backpack back quickly, without any disruption of his plans.
The airport asked you, a Business Consultant, to find the best solution to reunite Lars and his beloved backpack, so he finally can continue his dream journey in Australia.
