Returnable transport items (RTIs) like pallets and plastic trays do not sound like assets that need to be tracked carefully. But in reality, they are often misplaced, stolen or simply not returned by the client. 

Using  RFID to track and trace returnable assets has multiple benefits: 

  • reduced shrinkage (identification of misplacing, of theft, and of where RTIs are damaged)
  • optimized cycle times
  • right-sized and lean RTI stock levels
  • improved product flow and production planning
  • increased reliability of registration, resulting in less disputes with clients
  • labour savings due to a fully automated inbound and outbound registration.
