UPS Announces investment of US$140 Million to Expand RFID Usage Areas

In March, UPS CEO Carol Tomé stated in a financial report conference call that following the initial success of deploying RFID in some sorting centers in 2022, it plans to use RFID in other American regions besides the initial trial site in the United States in 2023. Labels to speed up package processing.

Currently, UPS has used RFID tags in its 100 sorting centers. In 2023, UPS will invest US$140 million in other 940 sorting centers in North America. Previously in 2022, UPS announced the implementation of a smart parcel plan in 100 warehouses, saying that this initiative would reduce approximately 20 million manual scans per day and save approximately US$500 million in operating costs.

The new plan includes installing RFID tags on packages and installing wearable devices on employees to eliminate manual scanning, reduce mispackaging, and speed up package throughput in express warehouses. At the same time, UPS plans to deploy RFID technology in all sorting centers, and may no longer use wearable devices, but interact with RFID tags through logistics vehicles. During the earnings call, Tomé said that in January this year, she saw these functions in the RFID pilot sorting center.

Michelin has Partnered with Beontag to Include RFID Tags in all Tires it Sells by the End of 2023.

In March, Michelin announced on its official LinkedIn account that Michelin and Beontag signed an agreement at its group headquarters to jointly develop built-in tire RFID tags.

Michelin said that this cooperation is an important milestone in promoting the development of the tire industry and RFID field!
