Practical examples and experiences of visibility systems deployments

Cases on technologies deployed to improve visibility


This study shows different types of cases on technologies deployed to improve visibility and operational risk management within supply chains:

 Pallet case Metro France. The pallet level is the easiest start up, especially in closed loops. Standardised solutions are already available.
•  EPCglobal is leading the development of industry-driven standards for the Electronic Product Code (EPC) to support the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).
•  ISO container cases Metro, DoD. Containers are potential targets for RFID identification but there is still a lot of barriers for global solutions.
•  Non ISO container case SECU
•  Temperature measurements with active RFID case Controlmatic
•  EPCGlobal and SMART-CM cases demonstrate how organizations can exchange real time event data and track shipments from the third party logistics provider. Also customs authorities will have real-time access to information about products and shipments as they travel along the supply chain.
