What resistance does RFID face in the logistics industry?
With the continuous improvement of social productivity, the scale of the logistics industry continues to grow. In this process, more and more new technologies have been introduced into the major logistics applications. Due to the outstanding advantages of RFID in wireless identification, the logistics industry began to adopt this technology very early.
However, in practical applications, the industry’s acceptance of RFID technology will still proceed from its own actual conditions. For example, in the e-commerce market, in response to the impact of counterfeit goods, RFID technology is often used in high-value products such as alcohol and jewelry, with the main purpose of anti-counterfeiting and traceability. For example, JD Wines combines blockchain and RFID technology to solve the problem of high-end wine in anti-counterfeiting.
However, the value realized by RFID is diversified. The application of RFID in the logistics field runs through the entire process, including the collection, sorting, sealing, warehousing, and transportation of goods, which can effectively reduce labor costs and cargo distribution. The error rate, improve efficiency and ensure the safety of cargo transportation and distribution.
The combination of RFID and automation technology can exert greater efficiency in the sorting process. For example, a flexible automatic sorting system can sort more efficiently and greatly save labor costs. At the same time, with the help of a real-time information system, it can automatically sense the storage of goods in the warehouse and replenish the warehouse in a timely manner, which greatly improves the turnover efficiency of the warehouse.
However, although RFID technology can bring many benefits to the logistics industry, it is easy to find that RFID technology has not been maximized in the logistics industry.
There are two main reasons for this. First, if RFID electronic tags are used for all single products, there will inevitably be a large amount, and the corresponding cost will be unbearable for enterprises. In addition, because the RFID project requires systematic construction and requires engineers to perform precise debugging on site, the difficulty of the entire system construction is not small, which will also cause concerns for enterprises.
Therefore, as the cost of RFID applications decreases and the solutions in practical applications continue to mature, it will inevitably gain the favor of more companies.
