Secure track-and-trace container debuts
A modular system with user-specified features can secure valuable products through the supply chain.
SmartContainer® from SAVR Communications was introduced in September as a modular, high-tech approach to track-and-trace security. It is applicable for high-value pharmaceutical, medical, and other sensitive products in the supply chain. Companies are already testing the SmartContainer in cold chain and high-end pharma applications, according to SAVR vp and general manager Adam Crossno. It employs modular systems configurable with options for RFID, Wi-Fi, GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications), CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) on a satellite-enabled operating platform. The unit can communicate its position in real time and conduct inventory of the contents when desired. Features include:
- Built-in 13.56 MHz (high frequency, HF) RFID reader to capture the information of the shipped items.
- Reader interface and locking mechanism.
- USB port access permits convenient transfer of collected data.
