Packaging Logistics Services (PLS), a British provider of plastic pallets and reusable containers, as well as a manager of pallets and containers used by other companies, is deploying RFID to track its own assets—while also helping customers to set up RFID tracking for their reusable pallets and containers. PLS is currently tagging its own products, in addition to installing RFID interrogators at its three European depots (two in the United Kingdom, and one in Germany), and at a number of third-party warehouses that the firm utilizes to ship its pallets and containers throughout Europe. In this session, hear the company’s future plans, which include putting readers in customers’ warehouses, and enabling them to share information with PLS regarding the containers’ movements.
