Norway pallet and tray pool operator for the grocery sector, Norsk Lastbaerer Pool, is utilizing LINPAC Allibert’s RFID-enabled Maxinest+ produce trays to reduce losses and boost efficiency in its fleet operations.
Details of supplier, content, customer location, washing and delivery schedules are input into RFID tags at the distribution center. The receiver can then scan the crates and pallets through an RFID portal and ensure that the precise quantity of trays is delivered to the right place at the right time.
LINPAC’s RFID-enabled Maxinest+ produce trays feature two water and shock-resistant RFID tags. They are applied at the point of manufacture and a test reader then individually validates the RFID-enabled trays before being distributed. The full pallet loads then pass through a portal, which records quantity and acts as a fail-safe check that the tags are working.
Customers receive the serial numbers by email for upload onto their system. This provides an instant quantity check at delivery and allows the quality-assured trays to be released directly into the supply chain. Company logo along with barcode can be printed on the outside, allowing the container to be easily identified and tracked at every point in the supply chain.
