From day one you had good solutions for every challenge. We had a long list of requirements. We needed the tags to withstand extreme heat as well as extreme cold. They needed to be watertight (IP68) and counterfeit proof so they could not be removed and re-used or copied. They needed to be lightweight but also very strong. The co-operation between our two companies was nothing less than very special. A beautiful product, a beautiful solution. Nothing less than great.

RFID Location Tracking Offers Exceptional Value for RTI Shippers

What is an RTI?

Returnable Transport Item (RTI) is anything that can bulk carry products or goods such as pallets, roll cages, returnable plastic containers, tote boxes, ingredients bins, dollies, IBCs (i.e., intermediate bulk containers), gas cylinders, kegs, etc.

The use of RTIs has been indispensable in both the modern shipping and consumer goods industries yet are also subject to supply-chain issues, waste, operational inefficiencies, billing and account errors, worldwide tractability regulations and ballooning management overhead costs.

However, RFID tags can provide increased economic visibility into the location of RTIs and the assets they carry that extend far beyond the cargo ship but deep into the vast network of trucks that deliver products to every point on the globe.

RFID technology can be an essential tool in enabling organizations to better manage, trace, track and audit their RTIs as they travel the world.
