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.

The city of Stuttgart pioneers a way of accessing transport and leisure services and purchasing in Germany

Anyone who travels regularly by public transport requires a ticket. Anyone who wants to use a car-sharing vehicle requires a card, and if you want to pay you need a card, too. And with each card the thickness of your wallet increases. Working with numerous partners, the city of Stuttgart has adopted an ambitious project to enable a single smart card to make payments and access transport and other services – this has been developed by the company Exceet for the Smart City project. Fabian Rau of Exceet talked to “RFID im Blick” about the aims of the project, the functionality of the application and the future potential of a newly developed security token.

Worldwide projects and investigations of Fresenius Kabi demonstrate the benefits of RFID technology, especially for the logistics of blood bags

Around 29 million blood bags and packed red blood cells are processed annually in Europe. Using RFID for identification in the logistics process, more than 400 million scans can be saved! There is an enormous potential for optimisation for blood donor services by using this technology, as Dr. Armin Reidel, Fresenius Kabi, explains. The technical requirements have been addressed by Fresenius Kabi and its partner Biolog-id in large-scale projects in Mexican hospitals and Italian blood banks, which are already showing benefits in practice.

RFID establishes decisive transparency over a pool of 110,000 special load carriers

Tata Steel Packaging (TSP), subsidiary of one of the largest steel companies worldwide, manufacturers steel products for the packaging industry in the Dutch city IJmuiden. The major share of the products is transported as coils on the circa 110,000 special returnable transport items (RTIs) with a total value of about 17 million. Around 10 percent of these RTIs gets lost per year. Therefore, a solution needed to be implemented. Today, all RTIs are captured automatically at the loading and unloading of the trucks as well as when coil and RTI are “wed” in the packaging system. The result: more transparency, lower expenditures.

Migros Ostschweiz is rolling-out an RFID system to establish a seamless tracking from the meat production to the supermarket

Each day, around 400 pallets with meat containers leave the production facilities with having one of the 100 stores that belong to the Genossenschaft Migros Ostschweiz as their destination. Now, the cooperative Migros Ostschweiz is about to roll out an RFID-based data pool that allows a gap-less tracking of transport boxes from the meat production until the supermarket. “RFID im Blick” talked to Kai Porankiwitz, Genossenschaft Migros Ostschweiz.
