Things move quickly in a global marketplace. With shipments coming in from around the world, distribution centers and ports need to operate at optimal efficiency to ensure goods get where they’re meant to go. Manual tracking of pallet contents, and inbound and outbound shipments can no longer keep pace with the speed of business. But with an automated RAIN RFID monitoring solution, you can.

Shipment verification connects real-time data about items passing through dock doors with the systems that run shipping and receiving. Battery-free and easy-to-deploy, the Impinj platform uses RAIN RFID technology to identify thousands of items per second (without direct line-of-sight) at a distance of up to 30 feet. Gain insights that can further automate processes and drive operational efficiency.

How it Works


Attach Impinj-powered RAIN RFID tags to pallets. Tags can be read at a distance and without line-of-site.


Impinj readers installed above, between, or beside doorways read and identify shipment contents and the direction of movement.


See data about the movement of goods in your existing shipping system and receive alerts when errors occur.

Gain insight into traffic patterns, service level metrics and other analytics based on accurate data about your shipments.

Learn how RAIN RFID helps keep products moving in and out of your facility for optimal efficiency. 

  • Load the right items on the right truck, every time
    Read tags that are on pallets, cases, or items to ensure that the right goods are on the right truck, every time. Verify shipments against manifests and alert your team when a shipment is incomplete, contains the wrong items, or is loaded on the wrong truck.
  • Monitor the direction of movement in and out of doorways
    RRAIN RFID from Impinj differentiates the directional movement of items for greater accuracy and flexibility. This allows for bi-directional dock operations, multi-door forklift loading practices, and prevention of theft from the dock door.
