The deployment of RFID smart labels aims to improve the efficiency of logistics processes. "Since the products, flowers, are perishable there are various critical goals to be monitored in the supply chain: to reduce the time of loading and unloading at product docks, ensure the accuracy of inventory control, reduce deviations and material losses in distribution, promote the reduction of operating costs and maximize financial results. The RFID smart labels will be read by mobile readers and fixed portals installed at the docks and in all logistics processes," the company says.
Jorge Possato Teixeira, cooperative logistics manager and Francisco Roberto Pereira, cooperative logistics coordinator at Coss Consulting, describe how the Confidex Carrier Pro, EPC Standard (Electronic Product Code) compliant UHF RFID smart label was chosen: The selection procedure included extensive tests with labels from several manufacturers as well as a pilot test, where Confidex’s RFID smart labels performed best among the tested products.
"Confidex’s project experience, technical knowhow and delivery capability were also important factors," Teixeira and Pereira say. Coss Consulting was selected due to the comprehensive project scope, taking overall responsibility for the entire technology installation.
