In 2016, Avery Dennison's RFID solutions achieved a milestone in partnering with a major airline to launch a first-ever global RFID bag tracking system, enabling the carrier to achieve a 99.9 success rate in monitoring bags through screening, sorting and transit.
Avery Dennison's RFID division worked with the airline to provide its AD-550m5 inlays for the new system. Integrated RFID technology enables bags to be scanned with no line of sight, while the tags are moving through the collection and delivery process at the airport.
Avery Dennison is working with major food retailers in the UK, Europe and United States to provide RFID solutions for the food industry. From the distribution unit to the fresh food item level, Avery Dennison is leveraging RFID to replace the manual or barcode-driven systems with high-speed technology, ultimately improving distribution accuracy, food stock management, and the labor cost to inspect foods. Increased visibility of use-by dates on highly perishable foods, like meat and fish, has shown a 20 percent reduction in waste.
Avery Dennison has introduced the TT Sensor Plus™, a small, smart label that logs time and temperature, to offer an innovative, easy-to-use, and cost-effective way to record the temperatures a shipped item is exposed to throughout its supply chain journey. These labels help to shine a spotlight on compromised deliveries and improving management of food throughout the supply chain. Designed using sensor technology and temperature data logging capabilities, the TT Sensor Plus™ is an alternative to the bulky temperature data loggers commonly used.
