The U.S. Marine Corps’ Blount Island Command, responsible for maintaining equipment and supplies aboard maritime prepositioning ships (MPS), is deploying long-range EPC Gen 2 RFID tags to expedite the loading and unloading of cargo. MPS vessels are loaded with a variety of equipment and supplies, including tanks, howitzers, trucks, ammunition, food, hospital equipment, petroleum products, supplies and spare parts. The vessels are then strategically positioned throughout the world, ready for rapid delivery ashore wherever and whenever required. In this session, learn how using passive EPC Gen 2 RFID tags has reduced labor hours and increased visibility into the locations of supplies globally.
