Travelpro, founded by a Northwest Airlines pilot in 1989, is dedicated to creating efficient rolling luggage. The company designed the first upright wheeled suitcase with an extendable handle and has expanded into garment bags, executive briefcases, rolling duffel bags, backpacks, and more.

Heritage - 5/5

Bob Plath designed the first Travelpro luggage in 1987 in his garage. As an airline pilot, Plath was tired of hauling around luggage that had to be carried—so he set out to design the first rolling suitcase. In 1991, Plath retired from air travel to focus exclusively on his luggage company.

Innovation - 4/5

Plath’s idea resulted in the Rollaboard®, the first wheeled carry-on suitcase with an extendable handle for pulling. The design impacted air travel protocols as airport security procedures and airline fleets were standardized to accommodate rolling luggage.

Reliability - 5/5

The Travelpro website has an FAQ page with guidance on orders, shipping, repairs, product care, and more. Customers can create an online account and register their products for specialized support. They can also submit an online service request form or call customer service representatives based in the US and Canada.

Social Good - 3/5

Travelpro has yet to engage in any philanthropic initiatives.

Relevance - 3/5

Travelpro is most popular on Twitter and Facebook, where it promotes new designs, brand partnerships and product updates. It also shares travel-related advice articles published on the Travelpro blog.
