Today, thousands of companies around the world use RFID in a variety of ways. This technology has found applications in railcar trucking, livestock tracking, product identification, weigh station management, and other fields in ways we wouldn’t have imagined a couple of years ago. Perhaps, one of the most popular and practical application of RFID technology is in improving fleet efficiency and productivity.
RFID tags and antennas can be read at long distances and increasingly faster vehicle speeds. These qualities help enhance safety and efficiency, while also making it easier to manage drivers.
A few benefits of RFID include:
- Vehicles can be monitored and located within the RFID equipped zone
- Facility to access logs of previous maintenance work
