Could My Company Use RFID to Track Finished Lumber During Shipping?
Are there any case studies related to timber packs (such as pallets) being tagged?
Most of the articles we have covered have been about employing RFID to track trees or raw timber. I have not seen any examples of companies using the technology on finished lumber during shipping, but there is no reason RFID cannot be used to track and manage inventory and shipments, the way it is being utilized in other sectors, including the steel industry.
Here are some articles for your reference:
