RFID Technology For Container Tracking
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology could be used to locate offshore containers. If you've seen one container you've seen 'em all—but you don't see where they all go. So you don't know who to look to when your containers don't return-and you end up eating the replacement cost. A quarter of all companies lose more than 10 percent of their reusable containers every year, according to a published study. Instead of looking for missing containers, look into the visibility and accurate tracking that RFID can bring instead. RFID can take the guesswork, blind spots and manual recording out of returnable container management. There's a clear and strong business case for tracking logistics assets with RFID that's backed up by many successful real-world references.
Why are companies turning to RFID to manage returnable logistics assets?
- Because RFID operations are proven to reduce losses and labor.
- Because RFID is standardized and compatible with legacy systems.
- Because RFID is a proven asset management tool.
