PALLET MANAGEMENT – RF TAGS RF Tags delivers a cost-effective and reliable solution for tracking reusable assets. The tags provides instant visibility to pallets entering & exiting the premises, as well as identifying where the pallets are located at any given time. The secure anti-tamper sensors have built-in memory for storing information about the asset or product such as temperature at any given time, location etc All pallets can be tagged with sensors as can any vehicle or machinery that is used in the warehouse or yard. The automatic pallet tracking technology reduces internal labour costs and human error, improving efficiency of supply chain operations and enabling timeous completion of orders. Is controllable from your desk through your internet connection with TAG management software.
