In 2007, the European Pallet Association (EPAL) launched a major EPC RFID pilot. The project’s primary objective is to identify each pallet individually, improve the control of production and repair, offer clear authentication and provide better asset management. EPAL also expects to reduce administration costs by automating licensing fees, decrease the number of counterfeit pallets, better identify black markets and increase customer satisfaction. Hear how this project is expected to change the logistics world and boost the adoption of RFID in Europe.
