RFID tag for Pallet Tracking

Many companies lease pallets and other logistics containers in order to offload the cost of maintaining their own pallet fleet. However,managing the return of these items has often proven challenging for pallet providers. Although many companies currently use cheaper wood pallets, demand for reusable plastic pallets has increased in recent years because of fears about crosscontamination from meat and other food products shipped on wooden pallets (which are often scrapped afterward), and new International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) requirements for the fumigation of wood pallets to prevent the spread of invasive insects. Plastic pallets also last longer and are lighter than their wood counterparts, which can save on freight costs.

A system for tracking the pallets while they were in circulation was desperately needed. Bar code technology was proposed, but determined to be insufficient for the application for two reasons. First, because these pallets are for carrying fresh produce, each pallet re-entering the facility is treated with a variety of cleaning chemicals and high-pressure washing. Bar codes simply could not endure these conditions. Also, the life of any pallet inevitably involves a significant amount of bumping and bruising, and even a small scratch can render a barcode useless.
