Monitor returnable transport items accurately and efficiently
In modern manufacturing production, most parts are transported from supplier to assembly lines in returnable transport item (RTI) containers. In order to assure availability of critical parts and tools needed for assembly, manufacturers must monitor the RTIs accurately and efficiently. Today it is a labor-intensive, manual process to track and trace goods within facilities and between suppliers.
The noFilis-Impinj IoT solution automates current processes and eliminates manual labor, leading to a significant competitive advantage for manufacturers. With the solution’s automated tracking and tracing, manufacturers can better manage the flow of RTIs and parts between supplier, manufacturing and within their organization.

Using the noFilis-Impinj IoT solution, manufacturers achieve increased performance and eliminate inaccuracies and downtime.
- Continuous, real-time visibility of returnable items including the movement of parts throughout facility
- Automated tracking that provides accurate management of mission-critical parts
- Visualize objects in geo- and layout-based maps
- Real-time visualization of merchandise availability
- Forward location data into the shared EPCIS repository, or as business events to other applications and backend systems
Easy-to-use applications make tracking your returnable inventory easy and effective.
Less time searching for RTIs leads to increased efficiency
With the noFilis-Impinj IoT solution, manufacturers gain continuous, real-time visibility of returnable items, including part movement throughout the facility, eliminating the search for RTIs and increasing production speed.
Automated tracking and tracing eliminates labor-intensive manual identification
Manual identification of RTIs is labor intensive and leads to inaccuracies. The noFilis-Impinj IoT solution uses RAIN RFID tags to identify the location of merchandise and tracked assets on easy-to-use maps.
Prevent loss or theft
With automated tracking, manufacturers gain the ability to identify assets at any time, allowing immediate identification of losses and quick location of missing assets.
Optimize asset management and decision-making
With real-time view of merchandise location and availability, manufacturers can accurately manage and deploy assets and improve decision-making and collaboration across the organization.
Inventory tracking information is continuously updated in system applications for real-time visibility
