With the rapid development of the retail service industry, the number of goods transported, the scale of logistics and distribution is constantly expanding, and the use of logistics turnover boxes is also increasing. How to make the assets of the turnover box not to be lost, the loss, etc. are important problems to be solved. RFID technology binds identity information to each tote, thereby reducing the cost of tote management and avoiding a large loss of the tote. It not only improves the efficiency of logistics operations, but also ensures asset security.
Turnover boxes are particularly important in the catering industry because of the serious shortage of dishwashing workers and the reduction of cost and the standard of hygiene for dishware. As the hygiene standards of the catering industry have been receiving much attention and facing the major test of the catering industry, the central dishwashing service industry has emerged as the times require. The turnover box for food and beverage distribution has become an important object of asset protection, not only in the transportation of food and beverage trays, but also in the efficient management of assets and inventory.
In order to improve the efficiency and quality of the cleaning table system, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the catering company have developed a logistics monitoring system that operates using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. In addition to RFID technology, the system also uses Internet of Things technology and cloud computing. And a variety of technologies are constructed.
Each tableware logistics box is labeled with a heat-resistant, waterproof RFID tag. When the tableware passes the checkpoint, the RFID reader reads the data and transmits it to the system. Retrieving, transporting, and cleaning from the cutlery box allows the user to grasp the progress in real time. The system can also recognize the cutlery box by radio waves.
After years of development, RFID technology has become increasingly mature, but to be applied in different industries, it needs to be specially designed to meet the needs of users. This dishwashing system using RFID technology for crop flow monitoring needs to take care of the operating environment of the partner company, and the details of the workflow, the choice of RFID tags, the type and number of readers, and the position and angle adjustment of the antenna installation. Software coordination, etc., must be considered together.
The RFID technology quickly realizes a control of the entire process of distribution, forward reception, turnover of the totes, and reverse recovery in the warehouse. RFID is an automatic collection of RFID electronic tags on the totes, so that the warehousing operations, automatic statistical inventory, etc., not only speed is very fast, effectively improve the efficiency of control, thereby saving a lot of labor costs. RFID technology is bringing a huge revolution in the supply chain, simplifying complex workflows and improving the efficiency and transparency of the supply chain.
