RFID Tags for Container Tracking to Increase Efficiency

RFID tags are widely used in logistics, for container tracking, and data collection.

Using RFID tags for container tracking to accurately obtain location and security information, realize supply chain transparency, optimize management.

Reduce the uncertainty of inventory and transportation cycle, which is of great significance to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the global container supply chain.

The features of RFID tags for export containers:

  • RFID tags are using radio frequency to search, identify, track, and communicate with items and people, with a small chip and matched antenna embedded, no need battery to support them. Do not worry about it won’t work due to the power being off.
  • Each RFID tag with the UID number, is not copyable, not changeable, like the Identification card for each item.
  • Used globally, readable by the matched reader, no matter whether fixed or handhold.
  • Can work in harsh environments, is not affected by rain, snow, fog, noise, vibration, etc., is strong anti-pollution, and is not easy to damage.
  • Small size, easy to operate, low cost can be applied in a large quantity, maintenance-free, rewritable, or disposable.
  • Automatic identification system that can be widely used in vehicles and containers.
  • Easy to operate, no need to cost much for long and complicated training.

Why apply RFID for container tracking?

rfid tag for container tracking

  1. Input and query material data, read and check the current information and status of materials in seconds. Record the container information, and eliminate wrong and missing one during transportation. Realize fast pass without stopping. No need to open each container to check and find what inside. Great savings in time and labor costs.
  2. Containers adopt RFID tags to record and automatically identify logistics information during transportation. Being able to update the location of the turnaround in real-time. Reminding the receiver to make preparations and plans in advance. Instead of waiting aimlessly, and in a hurry when goods arrived.
  3. Designate the cargo yard to search for safe and accurate unloading of materials. After being extracted by the system and transported to the stacking location, the efficiency and accuracy are improved, and then the station is allocated to a suitable location for placement, which is more orderly, and recorded data in real-time.
  4. Realize the safety monitoring of the container during transportation, and use the uniqueness of the ID of the RFID tag, which cannot be copied and changed. By setting a unique ID number for each container and binding it with the information in the database, simpler management can be achieved.
  5. If the RFID tag is damaged, it can be detected immediately and blamed, it’s hard to check by hand if gets lost when handed over.
  6. Security management and control, both full and empty containers need to be well controlled. Do not disassemble the goods and change the RFID tag at will on the way. By reading the UID number of the chip, you can easily know whether it has been disassembled.

Different types of RFID tags for logistics

Normal used chips are HF RFID tags and UHF tags.

RFID high-frequency tags identify specific targets through radio signals and read and write related data. They are the physical carrier of products and are attached to trackable items. NFC chips can be read and written by NFC-enabled smartphones or HF readers.

RFID UHF tags have the advantages of long recognition distance, fast speed, large storage capacity, and strong anti-interference ability, so they are widely used in the field of container management and solve the problem. (After the container leaves the factory, the specific location of the container cannot be known in real-time, nor can it be confirmed in time whether the container has arrived at the yard safely, etc.)

UHF tag can be read and written by UHF PDA, much more convenient.

How to install the RFID tag on the container?

RFID cable and seal to insert the tie to the lock and make it tightly.

The anti-metal tag can stick on the side with adhesive, or be fixed by a screw.

Using RFID tags for the container, will bring huge benefits to the logistics industry: effectively improve the management level and production and work efficiency, ensure the safety and quality of cargo transportation, and generate huge benefits.
