EPCglobal Inc, a subsidiary of the global not-for-profit standards organization GS1, announced the successful completion of the second phase of its Transportation and Logistics Services (TLS) Industry Action Group RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Pilot Program.

The transportation and logistics industry is facing key challenges related to supply chain efficiency, asset visibility as well as safe and security initiatives which the EPC and RFID technology enables to solve. The Pilot Program has demonstrated unprecedented real-time cargo visibility as goods flow between trading partners and logistics providers from mainland China to mainland US.

The second phase of the Transportation and Logistics Pilot Program, supported by METI and other members of the Transportation and Logistic Industry Action Group, started in November, 2007 and was recently completed. The TLS Phase 2 Pilot Program, initiated by GS1 EPCglobal, included two shipments of three containers.

Each container consisted of 40 pallets. The project involved the shipment of parts such as tyres and finished goods such as laptop computers of international corporations moving from source factories in China to distribution centers in the US, flowing through the ports of Shanghai and Los Angeles.

The objective of the TLS Phase 2 Pilot Program was to prove the capability for unprecedented visibility into the movement, location and disposition of assets, goods and services throughout the world as well as to validate the use of both passive and active UHF EPC tags for sea-shipment of cartons and containers shipped between China and the US.
