Weatherford Labs is using RFID technology to track sample containers of different sizes and shapes from a warehouse to an offshore drillship, then back to the laboratory for analysis and storage. The small containers house pieces of earth extracted by a drilling rig that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars a day to operate. Once a core sample is shipped, it is impossible to replace if lost. Learn how the system is enabling the firm to effectively monitor the high-value assets and significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to track the containers.
