The following steps are involved in the RFID process:
Warehouse personnel scan packages upon tender at the facility. Shipping information, i.e. number of pieces, route, weight, origin, and final destination, is entered into the computer, then an RFID encoded Air Waybill is printed and placed on the package. The RFID tagged container passes in front of a reader as it is loaded and is immediately associated with the RFID-tagged ULD (Unit Load Device) during the ‘hands free’ build up.
Current bar code systems are limited to information with a single-type code, by contrast, RFID technology, with greater data capacity, allows for any tag to have a unique code supporting individual product tracking as it moves from point to point through the system.
CARGOAware System utilizes a blend of technologies to achieve real time piece level tracking with our proven solution:
•Handheld Bar Code Scanners and RFID Readers
•Wearable (Arm or Vest) RFID readers
•Fork Lift Readers
•RFID Portals with Fixed Readers
•Fixed Readers in Key Process Points
•Messaging Interface with Warehouse Management Systems
•RFID AWB and ULD Labels
•Passive RFID Phased Array Antenna Tracking

RFID is a very effective and efficient identification technology, and it is the best technology currently available for improving track and trace visibility. Franwell began looking into wireless signaling technology in the early 1990s, seeking an innovative way to provide better visibility into product shipments and receipts, with a particularly strong interest in the fresh food supply chain. We are excited to bring the many years of Research and Development into the Cargo Supply Chain environment.
Franwell along with a number of participants initiated pilot testing of the CargoAware System technology in the air cargo environment around 2005. The results of these pilots revealed that this technology is capable of providing significant value to the air cargo supply chain.
As an early adopter of RFID to track cargo, your company can immediately become a global leader in the cargo industry.
The process provides increased visibility which results in significant return on investment in both management visibility at the piece level for quality purposes and reducing lag times for sensitive shipments.
RFID Solution offers:
Ability to timestamp last known location throughout the process in real time
Improved data collection / precision
Piece level data capture to ULDs (Unit Load Devices)
Ability to work in partnership with participating forwarders
Improved track and trace
Advantages over bar code scanning:
Simultaneous scanning – without human intervention
Ability to read multiple tags (no line of sight required)
Tags are less susceptible to damage as readability is not impaired by dirt, abrasion, cold, heat or packaging contour
Unique identity codes resistant to counterfeiting
