Pallet and Container Tracking

One of the most obvious uses for RFID tags are to track pallets or containers of goods, no matter where there are in your company. This is especially useful in routing pallets to proper storage or shipping points, or keeping track of receiving and shipping dates, or even the environmental characteristics the pallet has "endured" along the way.

In shipping operations where a single container may travel great distances, RFID data can be used to track the location as it is offloaded and re-loaded at specific waypoints. Managers can use data to see if a pallet or container is held up at a particular point, or where it was last noted in transit.
