RFID

RFID technology is commonly used in manufacturing for reusable container tracking.  The mismanagement of reusable containers from pallets, totes, tanks and more can have dramatic effects on your business operations.  Often the inability to track these assets can cause many problems for companies from increased labor cost to incomplete shipments or worse no shipment at all. With RFID technology you can know when the asset left and when it arrived at its destination.  The benefits to RFID tracking:

  • Reduces additional asset investments
  • Lower labor time and costs
  • Notifies of inaccurate moves or improper procedures
  • Quicker and more accurate inventories and asset searches
  • Helps prevent asset hoarding
  • Decrease misplacement, loss and theft
