RFID for logistics management:
accurate and reliable information in real time

Thanks to the incredible flexibility of this technology, it is able to offer significant advantages in logistics and warehouse management applications.

Why using RFID in logistics management?

Thanks to the use of antennas or readers it is possible to uniquely identify each object to which an RFID tag is affixed, even at a distance and inside boxes for example. In fact, it offers a solution to reduce personnel costs, optimize logistics flows and reduce the cost of errors to almost zero.

Using RFID technology, it is possible to know the exact location of the goods in the warehouse, thanks to real-time mapping, in order to have accurate and reliable information.

Simplify the logistics flow: here's how

In traditional logistics management, the shipping clerk carries out a massive reading of the barcodes of the goods, and then proceeds to load and ship them. The risk in this case is a possible misalignment between the loading list and the goods actually loaded. 

With an RFID solution, each pellet or single package is equipped with an intelligent tag that is read by an opening located near the loading area, in this way the reading and unloading of the warehouse is carried out simultaneously with the loading of the goods. In this way it is possible to speed up the logistic flow and avoid the cost of errors.

Real-time inventory thanks to RFID

Thanks to the use of handheld UHF frequency readers that allow reading even at a distance of 4-6 meters and fixed antennas, it is possible to have an inventory that is constantly updated in real time. The goods pass through gates into and out of the warehouse, automatically and immediately updating the warehouse inventory.

Having precise and punctual data is essential to be able to program orders and manage the Just in Time warehouse.

Advantages compared to the use of the Barcode

Barcodes have a function very similar to RFID technology and are therefore often chosen to perform common functions as an alternative to passive tag technology.

The latter represent a larger investment than the barcode for the customer, but undoubtedly offer greater benefits. Unlike the barcode, the Tag can also be rewritten and protected with certain passwords, thus making it a safer and more reliable tool.

These two technologies can still be used in combination, on the RFID tag it is in fact possible to print a barcode, this to simplify some steps of subjects who do not have a reader for example.

Reading skills

The barcode reader allows you to read one product code at a time, making operations such as warehouse loading, unloading and inventory long and expensive. The use of RFID in these cases allows you to read over a hundred products simultaneously.

Reading range

While the barcode reader has a reading range of a few centimeters, the RFID reader can read tags applied to products located up to ten meters away.

Reading speed

Even the reading speed of the RFID readers is surprising, it is in fact very fast (quantifiable in ms) unlike the barcode which is slower.

Possibility of reading through objects

Thanks to RFID it is also possible to identify the tags of objects even if they are contained, for example, inside boxes. The barcode reader, on the other hand, must visually identify the black-on-white code in order to read its content.

Unique identification

RFID tags have a unique identification code, each object to which it is affixed becomes in fact unique and identifiable, in this way it is possible to trace it along the entire supply chain. The barcode does not offer this possibility and usually products of the same type have the same barcode.
