RFID is increasingly used in logistics today for the way it allows for contactless reading and writing of data and importing multiple tags in batches. Processes like incoming inventory inspections and inventory, which used to be done one at a time, can now be done in bulk, greatly improving the efficiency of work processes.
RFID tags affixed to pallets and product cases are used for logistical administration. These can also be affixed to products to enable tracking the entire flow of a product from the plant to warehouse, on through distribution, and then to the final shop, as well as identifying what shelf it is on and whether it was taken to the register. This also allows for drastically improving the process of counting products one by one when doing inventory in-store.
JPR attaches RFID tags to its rental pallets and visualizes their movement, using this to develop procurement and supply plans, as well as support its clients. When pallet inventory arrives at its depots, it can analyze which item is bound for which client and which have been returned. This lets them determine how its clients use the pallets and predictively forecast things. This data is also used as the basis for various proposals they make to clients for the efficient use of rental pallets. As a result, clients can utilize rental pallets in an optimal fashion and at the minimum cost, achieving the true ends of the rental pallet system.
