Data collection is pivotal to information-driven solutions such as TrenStarEAM, the container management system. Using different data collection technologies as part of the tracking process, data is used to define actual events.
Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID)
At TrenStar, we use RFID to track assets because it meets the demanding operational requirements and is cost effective. RFID collects data at control points and feeds the information into TrenStarEAM. For example, we have implemented an RFID-system to track 4-5 million beer kegs for a UK customer, hospital equipment in a number of clinics across the US, Busses at Putco, Chemical containers at Buckman Africa and Ecolab, Rolltainers at Woolworths, returnable containers at Ford, Nissan and Ford P&A, assets at RMB and many other exciting projects.
