Be at the right place at the right time with RFID!

Currently, approximately 26,000 ordered items leave the Global Parts Distribution Center of Scania Parts Logistics in Opglabbeek, Belgium every day. To satisfy the ever-increasing orders from customers worldwide, the site has recently been significantly expanded. After the success of the employment of an RTLS-RFID system in the Scania Parts Center 1 (SPC 1), the use of RFID is currently being extended to SPC 2, recently built in 2012–2013. First tests with the new technology have provided such good results that the roll-out in late October will optimise delivery processes significantly benefitting overseas customers.

The constantly growing number of temperature-controlled air cargo increases demand for temperature monitoring – RFID is a part of the solution

Martin Stratmann, DHL Thermonet Product Manager Germany, anticipates that the demand for temperature- controlled air cargo will continue to increase, especially for pharmaceutical products. The logistics provider has just expanded its capacity with a new 600-square-metre logistics centre at the Frankfurt hub – it is one of 90 Thermonet stations worldwide where RFID sensor technology has become part of the transport solution for life sciences and healthcare products.

In order to optimise and simplify the management of around 12,000 laundry items a day, the University Hospital Ljubljana makes use of RFID

At a time when the need to minimise costs is such a prime consideration within in the healthcare industry, it is essential to make use of IT solutions that improve internal processes. As one of the largest institutions in Slovenia, the University Hospital Ljubljana has responded to this situation and has recently introduced an RFID solution for tracking work wear. The aim was to simplify the issue and return of work wear from and to the laundry service, and at the same time to improve working conditions. The project has been successfully introduced with the help of Slovenian system integrator Špica International.

A customer card increases loyalty: the fact that 98,000 have been issued with RFID speaks for itself

The “swa KAROCARD” currently provides an allin- one discount card for the people of Augsbury, Germany, to use for shopping, public transport or cashless payments at the FC Augsburg stadium. Introduced in 2003, the customer loyalty card, which has been running on RFID-technology since 2008, is a great success, with more than 98,000 cards issued. The product has continued to develop: additional applications have been regularly implemented, such as bike rental or e-charging stations from 2010 or discounted admission tickets to the municipal baths from 2014.

The arguments against it are that it’s too expensive, that there are no application standards – there won’t be an industry consensus in the near future

Equipping sea containers around the world with RFID tags is seen as unachievable by the majority of stakeholders: it is too expensive, there are no application standards – this has been the general opinion for many years. Shipping companies and terminal operators would have to come to an industry agreement to achieve the widespread introduction of container tags or electronic seals – and this does not seem possible. The shipping companies, who often own the containers, gain no immediate benefit from using RFID. On the other hand, the terminal operators and the logistics providers could benefit.

The automotive logistics service provider, Schnellecke, integrated this concept into its just-in-time delivery processes within its logistics centres in Bratislava and Leipzig

Every day around 50,000 parts leave the Schnellecke logistics centre in Bratislava “just in time” (JIT). This is one of Schnellecke’s 47 international logistics service centres for the automotive industry and it is one of two logistics centres where the sub-assembly processes and sequencing are controlled by RFID. “By integrating RFID into our IT system, we have established processes that are lean and state-of-the art. We achieve process stability, which is our ultimate goal for just-in-time logistics”, explains Dr. Abaid Goda, Senior Manager IT, Schnellecke Group.

Swedish Transport Administration is planning to extend its UHF track & trace system - European railway organisations and ports could benefit from information exchange

On which train are the goods and where about? Are the train wagons in Sweden or in The Netherlands? Is there imminent danger from overheating wheels? The exchange of this information is relevant for everyone involved in rail freight. The Swedish National Board of Transportation, “Trafikverket,” relies on a comprehensive approach. Based on RFID standards, it goes even further, stating the objective is a cross-border information system which can also benefit harbour freight. In intermodal transport chains, rail is the central interface between seaport and hinterland terminals.

Mercedes-Benz in Bremen is testing a new RFID tag to detect moisture during leakage tests

Water becomes a problem when it enters a vehicle. Therefore, extensive and meticulous leakage testing needs to be a standard procedure in vehicle finishing. Leakage tests are given a lot of attention, particularly in the early stages of a new production model. Innovative car concepts, such as hybrid vehicles with additional components, require an equally innovative way of testing, since conventional methods are no longer applicable. A promising approach is a completely new RFID application for the Bremen plant – Mercedes-Benz is in the process of planning this with a technology partner.

NFL teams profit from real-time information based on an active RFID solution by Zebra Technologies, in order to take them on the road to victory

An RFID solution that allows the capture and identification of individual players, as well as the visualisation of the plays in real-time during the match – which has been a wish not only of numerous club and association officials, coaches, and players, but also referees, and spectators. Zebra Technologies have now turned this dream into a reality. In the 2015 season, the solution from Zebra was installed at all 31 NFL stadiums in the US, the Wembley Stadium for the International Series, and the Aloha Stadium in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl. During more than 330 matches, from the pre-season to the Super Bowl in February 2016, all movements will be recorded.

RFID tags are far more than just a production tool! Being a part of the vehicle design, they can create added value for after-sale services

Since 2004, Volvo Cars has been committing itself to the “one unique tag” strategy and is strictly following this philosophy when rolling-out RFID globally under guidance from their European headquarters. The proven RFID systems were already fully integrated in the production site in Chengdu, China. Two more implementations in Chinese sites are planned for 2016. “However, new manufacturing processes required an adaption of the concept and the positioning of the tag,” explains Yvan Jacquet, Project Manager, Volvo Car Gent. The vision of the Swedish car manufacturer: The integration of RFID tags as a part of the vehicle design.
