- Container Tracking & 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.
