What is the prospect of RFID technology in the logistics industry?


Retailer Inventory Management

Simply put, RFID can improve retailers' inventory management, enabling timely replenishment, effective tracking of shipping and inventory, improving efficiency and reducing errors. At the same time, smart labels can monitor whether certain time-sensitive commodities are within the validity period; stores can also use RFID systems to automatically scan and bill at the checkout counter. RFID tags in the sales link of the supply chain terminal, especially in the supermarket, avoid manual intervention in the tracking process, and can make the generated business data reach 100% accuracy.

Enterprise warehouse management

In warehouses, RFID technology is most widely used to access goods and inventory, and automate operations such as inventory and pickup. The combination of RFID technology and the receiving, picking, and shipping formulated by the supply chain planning system not only enhances the accuracy and speed of operations, but also improves service quality, reduces costs, and saves labor and inventory space. At the same time, RFID technology also further reduces the losses caused by misplacement, wrong delivery, theft, damage, inventory, and shipping errors in the entire logistics process, improves the transparency of logistics management and inventory turnover, and ultimately optimizes the logistics within the enterprise. efficiency.
Transportation management

In the process of commodity transportation, RFID tags are attached to the goods and vehicles in transit, and RFID receiving and forwarding devices are installed on some inspection points of the transportation line. In this way, after the RFID tag information is received in the receiving device, it is uploaded to the communication satellite together with the location information of the receiving place, and then transmitted by the satellite to the transportation dispatch center and sent to the database to complete the tracking of the entire transportation process.

Terminal distribution management

In addition, the use of RFID technology in the distribution link can greatly improve the efficiency and accuracy of the picking and distribution process, and can reduce labor and distribution costs. The system checks the information read against the shipping records, detects possible errors, and then updates the information in the RFID tag with the latest product status. Inventory control is precisely managed, and you can even know exactly how many boxes are currently in transit, where and where they are transshipped, and when they are expected to arrive.
RFID has gradually landed and achieved practical results, providing better development assistance for my country's logistics system. In addition to the logistics supply chain, the new generation of RFID technology will also be widely used in new retail, new manufacturing and the Internet of Things.
