Shipment Verification:
Gain real-time visibility of goods, improve efficiencies, and reduce shipping errors

Operate at peak efficiency and without unnecessary stops

An automated shipment verification system powered by Impinj tracks shipments at the full speed of operations and eliminates the need to stop a load to scan barcodes. Dramatically increase efficiency with an automated system that keeps a team moving at optimal speed.

Accurately load the right items on the right truck – every time

Go from 99 to 100 percent accuracy for next-level operations. Read tags on pallets, cases, or items without direct line of sight, and get alerts when a shipment is incomplete, contains the wrong items, or is loaded on the wrong truck. Extend verification from staging to loading and eliminate opportunities for error.

Solve real-world constraints with flexible installation options

Choose the installation option that works best for your facility. Install readers in any doorway with options for above, between, or beside doors. Set up your facility with the configuration that works best for your environment, meets project goals, and increases safety. 



With RAIN RFID, Packaging and Shipping are Faster and More Accurate

When it comes to sorting, routing, and tracking packages as they make their way through the shipment journey, every second counts. Many processes happen in the blink of an eye. Packaging and shipping solutions powered by RAIN RFID can speed up these processes and enable businesses to dial in the efficiency of their operations. 

Supply Chain Automation:

Track goods moving across all locations

With end-to-end tracking across beltways and conveyors, operators gain visibility into all parts of a supply chain to know where inventory is located and see disruptions as they happen. Unlock next-level efficiency and new insights with visibility into every thing moving within and across all locations in your supply chain.  

Streamline and simplify distribution centers

Reading barcodes requires direct line of sight and expensive robots that flip packages to orient them correctly. With a system enabled by Impinj, quickly identify moving items without such limitations as they travel on conveyors, hand trucks, or forklifts. Operate a smart system that streamlines and simplifies operations and identifies every item correctly, every time. 

Eliminate picking and shipping errors

Backtracking because of errors is not only costly, it reduces trust in the whole system. Prevent packing and shipping errors with instant audits of items prepared for shipping, and eliminate the need to handle items multiple times. Teams work efficiently and customers get what they expect.

Pallet Build Verification:
Automate verification to ensure that the right cartons are always on the right pallet

Check for correct loading automatically

Automatically verify the correct cargo is always loaded onto a pallet as the pallet is built. When it's right the first time, there's no need to scramble later to track down a missing order. 

Eliminate hassle of scanning barcodes

Gain instant, automatic identification of many items simultaneously — and without direct line of sight — for speedy operations. Keep teams moving efficiently and eliminate the need to touch, spin, and flip boxes to find a barcode.

Receive alerts for errors and problems

Identify each box as it’s loaded onto a pallet and automatically compare with the shipping order to get alerts for wrong or missing pallet contents. Let the system do the checking. Eliminate human error and increase accuracy across all operations.
