Intelleflex Corporation.

This data is best captured at the pallet, bin or tote level – the domain of the reusable transport item, or RTI,” he says.

A new White Paper from Packaging Revolution written by Rick LeBlanc details the need for intelligent reusable transport items.

“An intelligent RTI or iRTI is a reusable transport item that is embedded with an RFID tag to collect and capture information about the RTI itself as well as its contents. When integrated into a software system, the iRTI provides important actionable data to help address some of the key challenges in today’s supply chains and provide a rapid ROI,” Payne says.
