Another important new technology which has become common in cold storage facilities recently is wireless Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). RFID utilises scanned tags to provide tracking information such as product movement, time spent in transit and temperature fluctuation data. At the loading dock, RFID helps manage the flow of goods throughout the warehouse, while drastically reducing labour hours. RFID tags, when integrated with an existing warehouse management system (WMS), will indicate a product’s destination, such as cross-dock movement or in-house inventory location, vastly improving throughput speed at the receiving dock. Standard loading dock procedure has always involved cumbersome bills of lading or packing slips. By removing this human element from cold storage monitoring, RFID systems minimise errors and reduce the need to open the product container at all.

Outbound shipments benefit, too. RFID tags share a product’s location from source to its final destination, no matter the method of transportation. This smart supply chain boosts product visibility throughout the cold chain improving the management of perishable and temperature-dependent products, enabling suppliers to deliver a fresher, higher quality product for the consumer.
