The efficient management of the increased unique product variants, smaller shipment sizes, and increased complexity requires accurate real-time data on all goods along the supply chain. RFID brings the item, asset, and pallet level data available for further optimization of the processes.
Supporting the accelerated digitalization of the supply chain, Confidex RFID tags and labels are used daily for identifying millions of assets across industrial and logistics businesses globally. These assets include everything from cardboard boxes to a wide range of returnable transit items such as metal cages, pallets and washable plastic crates. RFID applications to track and trace goods from supplier to customers have become standard in around-the-clock logistics operations.
As a milestone of ongoing progress, Confidex has collaborated with key logistics operators to develop the Confidex Crosswave RFID label family to meet today’s interconnected Logistics 4.0 requirements.
The first member of the product family Confidex Crosswave Classic comes with superior performance that is powered by the Impinj Monza 4E chip. The RFID labels provide digital identity of the shipments, connecting them accurately to the IT systems with various reader setups.
“As a key design criteria, the Confidex Crosswave Classic RFID logistics label is designed to work reliably, even though the assets face the reader in a wide variety of orientations while being handled,” said Miika Pylvänäinen, senior product manager at Confidex. “This flexibility for RFID label orientation brings consistent read performance to simplify cross-docking and portal applications.”
The Confidex Crosswave Classic label has sensitive performance and dual-dipole design, which connects the attached goods reliably to the RFID RTLS network and allow the operator to see the real-time data on pallet or shipping units location. With longer read distance and higher sensitivity, the RFID label also allows faster location updates yielding more granular tracking of assets.
