Patrick, one of Australia’s leading providers of port-related services to importers, exporters and shipping lines, has implemented a container-tracking system on a fleet of modified half-height containers that move copper concentrate from a mine to a port. The tags are read at the mine weighbridge, tracking the weight of each container, which is then picked up at the port by forklifts fitted with RFID readers and GPS receivers. Learn how the technology is being used to deliver real-time visibility into the location of the containers as they move around the port, enabling the firm to track exactly how much is loaded onto each ship.
