Retain an overview of more than 200 000 containers with RFID

For the efficient real-time supply management of more than 200 000 circulating RTIs (returnable transport items), at the beginning of the year, Dutch company Varoda Rent has put a UHF-solution at the loading ramps of its warehouse into operation.

Varoda Rent provides the service of the moving of boxes and trolleys for office- and factory moves. For the development and manufacturing of the boxes and trolleys, Varoda Rent is sharing the building and is working closely with P.A. van Rooyen, a Dutch removal company specialized in offices moves. Varoda Rent is offering all kinds of rolling containers, boxes, dollies, Smartboxes, and several more for the industry of professional moving and the facility departments of companies, schools, governmental institutions or hospitals.

If a customer picks up the order, the order form is scanned at the beginning of the loading process and the freight as displayed the screen of the portal. But, in the past, it often happened that the number of returned containers didn’t match the number of rented containers. In order to keep an overview as to whether the right containers were returned and to reduce mistakes resulting from manual counting, the company decided to use an RFID-solution.

„The big challenge was to find the right tag for the mixture of different kinds of container, such as wooden trolleys, plastic boxes and metal dollies“, explains Jason Scrivens, RFID Business Unit Manager at the system integrator Aucxis. „Almost 100 different types of movable goods were equipped with UHF-tags (Smart Labels, Mount-on- Metal-Tags und Hard Tags). Furthermore, the RFID-reader portals had to be attuned in order to be able to capture accurately all items in the bulk.“

Using RFID now, both companies know the location of transported goods at any time. Based on the integrated ERP solution, all information to current rentals can be tracked online.
