A chemical company is employing a radio frequency identification solution to record when its reusable containers leave its facilities and are returned by customers, and to track their condition. This has enabled the firm to improve efficiency, while ensuring that damaged or out-of-date containers are not used to ship chemicals. Workers are accomplishing this goal by using an RFID handheld with a built-in camera to read passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) Gen 2 RFID tags on the containers as they leave and are returned, and to take pictures of any damage. Learn how the solution has helped the manufacturer to save money and meet environmental regulations.
