Automation Shipment Tracking to Empower Excellence

Automate tracking of shipments moving in and out of dock doors for efficient processes and accurate data in your shipping systems.

Automate shipment tracking to deliver on customer expectations and increase the speed of operations

Things move quickly in a global marketplace. With shipments moving around the world, distribution centers and ports need to operate at optimal efficiency to ensure goods reach the correct destination. Manual tracking of inbound and outbound shipments can no longer keep pace with the speed of business or navigate disruptions. Shiping systems enable fast, efficient operations.

A platform for shipment verification solutions

The Impinj platform uses RAIN RFID—a wireless technology that provides unique identifiers for individual items, operates without batteries, and reads thousands of items instantly without direct line-of-sight. Shipping, logistics and IoT solutions enabled by the Impinj platform connect data about the shipments moving through distribution channels to existing enterprise management systems. Each shipment moving through distribution is identified, enabling smart inventory and agile supply management.

  • – Connect real-time data about items passing through dock doors with the systems that run shipping and receiving
  • – Identify shipments while moving, without direct line-of-sight, as they move through dock doors
  • Gain insights that can further automate processes and drive operational efficiency
Tag Shipments

Attach Impinj-powered tags to pallets. Impinj tag chips can be read at a distance and without line-of-sight.

Read Shipments

Use Impinj-powered readers to identify shipment contents and their direction of movement. Readers can be installed above, between, or beside doorways and identify shipments moving at speed.

See Shipments

Connect data about shipments with enterprise systems for insight into traffic patterns, service level metrics, and other analytics to improve operations.

Know exactly when, and where every item exits the store

Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) systems can trigger alarms when items are removed from the stores, but offer no insight into which items are missing or where these items moved within the store. These blind spots leave retailers vulnerable and put their profitability at risk. A loss prevention system enabled by Impinj lets retailers see the date, time, and exit location of each stolen item to enable proactive prevention strategies.

See patterns to identify and respond to trends

Knowing where each item in your store is at all times provides an intimate look into how products move—so you’ll not only be alerted when people try to walk out with items, but you can connect item data with loss trends. The same system can provide visibility when products enter and leave zones, such as fitting rooms. Identifying patterns allows for better preventative measures to address the source of the problem. Move from reactive to proactive with greater visibility into details of loss and shoplifting.

Seamlessly integrate with automated checkout and return

Gain a seamless loss prevention solution integrated with automated checkout and return. Unique features enabled by tag chips enable integrated loss prevention while protecting consumer privacy by making a RAIN tag invisible to RAIN readers. The tag can be returned to normal operation, made visible again to RAIN readers, using a secure PIN. This gives retailers opportunities to immediately, and automatically, remove a purchased item from inventory, improve the customer experience at store exits while protecting the customers’ privacy, and enabling seamless returns of an item to store inventory.

Retail Loss Prevention from Sensormatic

Shrink is a multi-billion-dollar problem for retailers. With increasing losses, retailers need improved visibility into loss for better insights and analytics to go from reactive to proactive strategies. Using real-time data from RAIN RFID, gives retailers a more complete picture of loss events.

Gain real-time visibility of goods, improve efficiencies, and reduce shipping errors

Operate at peak efficiency and without unnecessary stops

An automated shipment verification system powered by Impinj tracks shipments at the speed of operations and eliminates the need to stop and check a load for barcodes to scan. Dramatically increase efficiency with an automated system that keeps a team moving at the speed of work.

Accurately load the right items on the right truck every time

Go from 99 to 100 percent accuracy for next-level operations. Read tags on pallets, cases, or items and alert teams when a shipment is incomplete, contains the wrong items, or is loaded on the wrong truck. Extend verification from staging to loading to eliminate any opportunity for error.

Flexible installation options solve real-world constraints

Choose the installation option that works best for your facility. Install readers in any doorway with options for above, between, or beside doors. Set up your facility with the configuration that works best for your environment, meets project goals, increases safety, and reduces accidents.

Japan Pallet Rental Tracks Pallets with RAIN RFID

Japan Pallet Rental uses RAIN RFID technology to help track and manage assets to run a more cost-effective business. Recognizing the environmental and cost inefficiencies of traditional pallets, Japan Pallet Rental created a network of reusable assets that help companies save money and move goods more effectively. 

To help track their products, Impinj partner Mighty Card worked with Impinj to develop a custom RAIN RFID solution to track pallets

Improving Supply Chain Visibility with RAIN RFID

One of the most vexing supply chain challenges can be summed up in one word: visibility. Keeping track of shipments can be a costly, inefficient, and error-prone process. 

The culprit? Antiquated processes like manually scanning items, using paper-based forms, or visually confirming the contents of containers.
