RFID Warehouse and Logistics Tracking System
In most warehouse and logistics environments, the RFID tracking system has become an invaluable tool and a necessity. Typically, RFID tracking works through several stages. At each step, inventory comes under greater control in an efficient contactless manner.
Sample Process in a Warehouse Operation
1. Once the cargo arrives at the warehouse receiving dock and is unloaded from the truck.
2. An RFID tag is attached to the items (or entire pallet) in that shipment.
3. Each RFID tag has an internal memory on which an item’s information is stored and modified as it moves through different processes in the warehouse.
4. The RFID tag transmits the shipment or item’s information to a central database via an electromagnetic signal.
5. The warehouse management system analyzes and updates the data as the item progresses through the warehouse system.
6. RFID tags don’t require line-of-sight scanners and can read thousands of items in seconds.
7. Cycle counting, and inventory monitoring is instant.
With an RFID warehouse tracking system, items can be scanned and catalogued from anywhere, even when they’re hidden behind boxes or pallets.
RFID tags can also be detected and read remotely and simultaneously. With this kind of functionality, multiple tags can be read at once.
By comparison, barcodes need to be scanned one at a time and some add-on processes can be automated by using Pallet Tracking, Asset / Equipment Tracking, Personal Tracking, Cold Chain Temperature / Box Tampered Tracking, Personal Tracking and more.
Automated RFID Tunnels, Gateways, RFID Conveyor Systems, Motion works are some of the many solutions to increase the accuracy and scalability of your operations.
