East Coast Warehouse Tracks Shipping Containers via RFID

East Coast Warehouse & Distribution (ECW), a provider of logistics services, has reduced labor costs and boosted productivity via a radio frequency identification solution that tracks the locations of more than 1,000 shipping containers throughout its 60-acre yard.
The solution, known as the Advanced Yard Management System, was provided by PINC Solutions and includes passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tags attached to containers, as well as RFID readers installed on yard trucks (switchers), and cloud-based yard-management software, says Rafael Granato, PINC's marketing director.

When a switcher backs a container to a dock door, the RFID reader mounted on the truck documents that action by reading the Omni-ID RFID tag temporarily mounted to that container.
