Goodpack Limited has begun the implementation of RFID tagging every one of its more than 2.6 million intermediate bulk containers (IBC). The Singapore-based company provides a patented unique packaging alternative for bulk cargo to replace wooden boxes and metal drums, for cost and environmental advantages.
The RFID solution will be used to prevent loss and ensure correct customer billing. Goodpack will also monitor wear and tear so that timely maintenance can be performed when needed. The tagging of Goodpack containers is expected to be completed within the next eighteen months.
Additionally, Goodpack added that customers will also be able integrate and use the RFID tracking system to monitor their products through their own logistics tracking systems.
Goodpack IBCs are constructed from steel and galvanized for strength, durability, and longevity. The cargo capacity of a standard shipping container will hold 16 Goodpacks, each with a cargo of up to 1,500 kilograms.
