Common usage of RFID technology in logistics is still hampered by two factors:

  • RFID transponders can’t be read when covered with metal or liquids. They also can’t be read when applied directly to metal surfaces and packages with liquids.
  • The price is several dozen times higher when compared to classic labels with printed barcodes, which is also significant.

Nevertheless identification with the help of RFID technology is common for the following applications:

  • Access control and working time registration
  • Identification of persons
  • Marking and identification of high value products
  • Identification and tracking of inside-rotating carriers
