RFID for logistics management:
accurate and reliable information in real time
Why using RFID in logistics management?
In traditional warehouse management systems the shipping clerk records a summary list of the goods reading 1D or 2D codes, and then proceeds to load and ship them. The risk in this case is a misalignment between the loading list and the actually loaded goods.
In a RFID system smart tags are attached to each pallet, box or single item. Once the goods check in or check out, they pass through a reading portal and warehouse load and unload is recorded real time. This allows great speed-up of logistic processes and error cost elimination.
