Tracking Plastic Pallets and Reusable Containers with RFID Tags
How can you transport large quantities of goods efficiently, without affecting cost and profitability across the supply chain? Moreover, how do you accurately track and document the movement of these goods? Some companies are using the latest technology to manage their quantity distribution, by applying radio frequency identification (RFID) label products to plastic pallets and reusable plastic containers (RPCs).

Are You Tuned into Radio Frequency Identification?
This article examines the organizational fit of radio frequency identification (RFID) and its technology’s basic mechanics. Its prohibitive costs often account for the decision to not implement RFID. Yet some factors influencing adoption may shed new light on why RFID is important.
: Figure 1. Flow of RFID information Tag Types and Characteristics The tags are key components of any RFID system. Understanding the properties, capabilities, and limitations of each tag type will assist in the solution design. The tags currently in use within the industry are listed in Table 1, which identifies the five different types of tags and lists their advantages, disadvantages, and common applications. Tag Type Advantages Disadvantages Application Active Greater read range, greater memory
Demystifying the EPC Global Network: An explanation of ONS, EPC-IS, and EPC-DS

To those in the heat of battle, the implementation of an end-to-end data sharing network must seem like a faraway dream indeed. And there is still considerable standards development work needed. The EPC-DS is still being defined. There is a vital need for standards for the

The benefits are gained and eventually the technology would be deployed throughout all of the manufacturing and distribution facilities.

RFID Case Study: Gillette and ProviaPart Two: Challenges and Lessons Learned
Compliance with the market RFID mandate has unfortunately preceded the achievements of applied physics and computer science. One of the main obstacles is the lack of integration, since there is a dearth of software tools from enterprise application integration vendors to get data from RFID tags and readers into existing business systems, meaning that companies are often forced to do expensive custom integration work.
: than those developed for RF and automated material handling equipment is required by the vendors to transform an unstructured mass of data into an input the system can understand and process. In any case, software vendors will thus have to create new data fields to cope with the inevitable data deluge by ensuring that data tables, transaction systems, and data warehouses can handle all of it, and, in general, vendors have been by and large responding to the RFID challenge. The likes of Provia, which have

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold MannerPart Two: RFID Compliance
Provia's approach to radio frequency identification (RFID) compliance was to offer a bolt-on or drop-in product that works in conjunction with a company's existing logistics transactional software solution and process flows. This should put the suppliers back into control of prioritizing their IT projects because they could supposedly thereby be fairly easily and quickly made compliant with Wal-Mart or the DoD requirements for RFID. The next step for them would then be to look at how they can reap the benefits of RFID internally within their own operations.
: or shipment confirmations. Therefore, RFID tags could help companies better track and control inventory—from warehouses, to loading docks, to trucks and finally when the customer receives the product. As a result of these efficiencies they may eventually promote, RFID tags may one day replace bar codes. The product s touted advantage is that it makes use of existing WMS features (e.g., end-to-end serial number tracking of cases and each units; serial number masking and patterns, etc.), whereby transacti
