Enabling smart tracking for the supply chain and Industry 4.0 with RFID
Do you know where your product has been and where it is going right now? This is the challenge that many manufacturers and logistics companies face in the management of their supply chains. As more functions are outsourced and supply chains become more complex, traditional approaches to keeping track of product movements are unable to keep pace.
In food and medicine supply chains understanding how products are transported is critical. If the temperature rises beyond a safe threshold at some point during transportation, the food may no longer be safe to eat at its destination and medicines become ineffective. During transport, goods will often change hands several times. The producer can keep track of the temperature of their pallets while they hold them. But when handed over there are no guarantees their guidelines will be followed. Spot checks with data loggers at points on the product’s journey can only provide a snapshot. This is where RFID technology is beginning to make a difference.READ THE BLOG
