In the Integrated logistics industry, Radio Frequency (RF) technology has entered the reality. Both employers, and employees can look forward for a cohesive working environment with the modern technology. As such, Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) has many advantages and benefits as the technology helps to streamline the working flow, provide the accuracy of inventories, exact delivery destination and wastage of man-hours. This article discusses how the RF technology can concatenate several physical assets towards integrated logistics.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology
RFID is a wireless technology that allows for tracking and matching of shipments. Basically, the system has two basic parts: tags and readers. Firstly, the reader gives off radio waves and gets signals back from the RFID tag, and while the tag uses radio waves to communicate its identity and information. It is also meaning of keeping a track of shipments using digital encoded tags and a digital database that contains information about the tagged shipments. In another word, RFID technology is similar to barcoding. In reality, RFID technology will be advantage for integrated logistics.
