CoreRFID has helped a major distributor sort performance shortfalls with its RFID delivery van tracking.
Although using electronic tags on vehicles to automatically identify their arrival at a loading point or delivery depot is an established way of getting better information about vehicle locations, such systems need to operate to a consistent, high level of reliability to give confidence to users.
In this particular case, the system was achieving a 99.5% success rate in the outbound lane but only a 70% to 80% success rate in the in-bound lane, at which point CoreRFID was hired to diagnose and help resolve the issue.
Following a consultancy project CoreRFID provided the client with specific advice on actions to allow the system to achieve its expected performance levels, including resolving tag positioning problems.
CoreRFID’s technical director Munzi Ali explained: “RFID is a highly effective system, with the potential to save substantial time and money. But any effective system needs to be correctly installed. Through the audit we were able to identify the issues preventing the RFID system from performing to it full capability and suggest ways the user could make full use of its investment in RFID.”
