RFID’s Benefits For Transportation Are Effective and Proven

Moving products from place to place can lead to a number of issues. RFID and RFID asset tracking/tagging can help in everyday tracking across several industries including transportation.

As a review, (RFID) Radio-Frequency Identification is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object. This tag can be read from several feet away.
