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 distance and without line-of-site.


Impinj readers installed above doorways 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. 

  • Get the right stuff on the right truck, every time
    Read tags that are on individual items, pallets or containers to ensure that the right goods are on the right truck, every time. Verify shipments against the manifest and alert your team when a shipment is incomplete, contains the wrong items or is loaded on the wrong truck.
  • Track the direction of movement in and out of doorways
    RAIN RFID from Impinj differentiates the direction of movement of items for greater flexibility. This allows for cross-docking operations and double-stacked forklift loads going in one door to drop off one item, then through the next door to drop off the second item.
  • Flexible reader installation for any environment
    Installing Impinj gateways above doorways eliminates collisions with forklifts that happen with readers placed on posts in doorways. Impinj gateways are flexible for installation needs – above, between or beside doorways, and are proven to work in rough environments.
  • Gain real-time, accurate data about the movement of goods in your operation
    Integrate real-time, item-level RAIN RFID data into enterprise shipping and logistics applications. The integration is proven and simple. You’ll have accurate information that enables your team to make key business decisions.
  • High performance. High data integrity. High confidence.
    Gain confidence that all the data about shipments is correct in the system of record. The Impinj platform includes algorithms, diagnostics and advanced capabilities that eliminate stray reads, automatically adjust system performance and ensure accurate tag data delivery.
  • Track reusable shipping containers and other assets
    Add RAIN RFID tags to reusable shipping containers for automated management of where the containers have gone and when they’ve been returned. Automate the process of keeping track of reusable containers that are shipped out and returned to your business.
