Pallet Tracking

The cost and profitability in the supply chain management largely depends on the efficiency and quality of the transportation. The challenge is to move quantities quickly with the least amount of handling in the most efficient and profitable way possible. One of the latest tools to manage quantity distribution is radio frequency identification (RFID) applied to plastic and wooden pallets and reusable plastic containers (RPCs)..
RFID tags, like the tag factory products, can help solve some of the logistical problems that affect the pallet/RPC industry. Inefficiencies in logistic tracking, lost and misplaced containers, inaccurate data on usage rate that can result in incorrect customer billing and lost revenue.
The data needed to resolve these issues can now be written directly and stored on to RFID tags attached to RPCs as these items move throughout different points in the supply chain. Using RFID tags, companies are better able to manage their pallets and RPCs and obtain more accurate product data. With millions of pallets in use, it is important to have 100% accurate data about these containers at all times, and be able to track them with less labor.

IT Asset Tracking

Secure and efficient operation of data center is critical for companies and institutions. With data integrity,legal and industry compliance requirements becoming more critical, the ability to document critical server and SAN components is becoming more important than ever. Security and effective data center management starts from visibility of IT assets by real-time tracking and monitoring of servers, SAN tapes
        and disks, and critical IT components. Tracking thousands of assets in a typical banking data center, and ensuring that laptop computers leaving a building are authorized to do so—and are with the properly authorized users—is a cumbersome task for bank security officers. 
Laptop Tracking:
        Employees and contractors entering and leaving the building often carry laptop computers that, in many cases, are the property of the organization but are assigned to a specific person. To track the laptops and ensure none leave in the wrong hands, security guards at the doorway would inspect individuals' computer bags and, upon finding a laptop, would look up the serial number listed on the computer in a company directory, to determine who was authorized to use that machine. The guards would then have to determine whether the individual holding the laptop was the one to whom it was assigned. 
This system was time-consuming, led to long queues as employees left the building, and was a source of frustration to both security gaurds and workers. With the RFID system, the process was automated. Each laptop computer has attached to a passive tag with a unique ID number. That number is linked in back-end system to the computer's serial number, make and model, as well as the name and a photo of the individual authorized to use it.

Waste Management

RFID is now being used by municipalities to monitor waste pickup. Waste Disposal trucks equipped with RFID readers pick up bins marked with RFID tags. The readers then record the exact time and place every time a waste bin is emptied. This permits a new degree of monitoring and control of the waste-disposal process. By installing RFID tags on the trucks, identification is automatic at waste disposal sites and waste weight can be logged into an integrated database that serves the organization. Tags attached to waste containers let operators monitor sorting quality, track the number of times a container is set out for collection and track the weight of its contents. It also simplifies billing for service and supports the implementation of incentive .RFID implementation thereby can provide a centralized real-time view of the entire process. The selection of tags can have a huge impact on the success of a waste management initiative. System integrators, bin manufacturers and lift manufacturers expect reliability. Every installed tag must work and keep on working. Waste management equipments come in many shapes, materials and sizes, but large or small, metal or plastic, residential or commercial; they are all subject to harsh environments and rough handling.Outdoors they face heat, cold, rain, snow and ice. Even in ordinary use, they are tossed, turned and dropped, either by humans or machines. They may face harsh chemicals, inside or out, and in some applications, the rigors of power-washing as well. In the face of all these challenges, they are often expected to last a decade or more. Our M- Superior is ideal and suitable for such kind of application.

Container Tracking and Identification

RFID passive tags can be programmed with contents and assigned locations and then placed on containers that are stored and shipped across the world. Additional information can be collected and added to the RFID tag. The tracking system can identify unscheduled movement, so managers and security can keep a track and prevent cargo theft occurring annually. The majority of such losses occur through collusion from within the legal networks of cargo owners. The lack of integrity in supply chains that span across continents makes the control of fraud, theft and security breaches a very challenging task. It's beneficial to track the shipping container with RFID, if the container is a returnable or reusable asset. By using RFID tags on pallets, drums, racks and other shipping containers to track their movements and associate them with specific customer shipments, organizations build an accurate information foundation to recover more of their assets and manage them more efficiently.The integrity of the global container logistics chain can only be guaranteed if a trail of custody exists covering the entire operation, including the verification of goods when containers are loaded, verifying container marking. Passive RFID has been identified as the most suitable and cost-effective technology for the universal implementation of electronic security seals.
