It has been less than 2 years since Cainiao released the technology to the outside world when the shipment volume reached the above-mentioned level. Industry insiders believe that the Internet of Things is the key path for digital intelligence upgrades in the supply chain.

Cainiao’s ability to achieve the above results in a relatively short period of time not only indicates that Cainiao has obtained more sufficient precipitation in technology, but also reflects the market’s recognition of Cainiao’s RFID products.

Previously, due to limited technological breakthroughs and low recognition accuracy, RFID has not been put into practical application on a large scale. In April 2021, the RFID technology led by Cainiao was exposed.

According to media reports at the time, by optimizing the chip, reader and a set of recognition algorithms behind it, Cainiao has greatly improved the recognition accuracy of RFID, reaching a global lead. The breakthrough of this key technology makes the large-scale commercial application of RFID possible.

According to Xu Ming, general manager of the IoT business of Cainiao Logistics Technology, the optimal identification accuracy rate of Cainiao’s RFID has been further improved to 99.9%. The key to Cainiao’s RFID technology breakthrough lies in tags and readers.

The customized tags developed by Cainiao based on chips have greatly improved the identification sensitivity of RFID, especially in solving the problem that the identification accuracy is difficult to improve in scenarios containing metals and liquids.

After the breakthrough in RFID technology, Cainiao quickly established products and solutions, such as shoe and apparel supply chain solutions, food supply chain solutions, and turnover container solutions. At present, Cainiao RFID technology has been widely used in apparel, food, logistics and other industries, and the relevant capabilities have been verified and recognized by customers.

Internet Technology Brings about Tag Chip Development

“The Internet of Things is accelerating its penetration into various industries. The large-scale application of Cainiao’s RFID technology is expected to greatly promote the digital upgrade of the supply chain and logistics.”

The production of packaging materials enables digitalization of every package. “Taking the Cainiao recycle box as an example, equipped with RFID (radio frequency identification technology) chips and the recycle box management system developed by Cainiao Packaging, it is possible to efficiently identify and digitally manage each box in the form of “one code per box”, In turn, it will help merchants realize digital supply chain management in units of boxes.”

Ding Hongwei, vice president of Cainiao Logistics and general manager of the logistics technology division, said that under the background of digital and real integration, the logistics industry is accelerating towards digitization, automation, and intelligence. Cainiao’s RFID chip shipments exceeded 100 million pieces, which not only benefited from Cainiao’s logistics technology’s deep cultivation of the Internet of Things (IoT), accumulated certain advantages, but also the inevitable result of market development.

RFID technology has a wide range of application scenarios and plays an important role in realizing the digitization of the supply chain. At present, the market application of RFID is still in its infancy. Cainiao Logistics Technology will continue to polish core technologies, enhance the advantages of products and solutions, and help more industries transform and upgrade.

Summary and Outlook

By optimizing the chip, reader and a set of recognition algorithms behind it, Cainiao Logistics Technology has greatly improved the recognition accuracy of RFID, reaching a world-leading level, and has been widely used in clothing, food, logistics and other industries.

The Internet of Things is the key path for the digital intelligence upgrade of the supply chain. Cainiao’s ability to achieve the above results in a short period of time not only indicates that Cainiao has obtained more sufficient precipitation in technology, but also reflects the market’s recognition of Cainiao’s RFID products.

It is expected that in the future, RFID technology will play a more important role in the process of digital upgrading of logistics and supply chain. Newbega Company is a manufacturer of RFID chips with profound strength.
