Cold Chain Management

RFID Journal LIVE! 2007 features sessions focused on the use of radio frequency identification systems for cold chain management. In addition, some of the vendors exhibiting at RFID Journal LIVE! offer cold chain management solutions. View the exhibitor list.

Monday, April 30
  1:15 pm—Preconference Seminars
  RFID's Role in the Cold Chain
This session explains what RFID technology is available for use in the cold chain today, how it can be leveraged and what the basic cold chain applications are in various industries, including produce and pharmaceuticals. You will see samples of the RFID data that can be collected, where it can be collected and how it can be used, and you will learn why RFID temperature sensors offer some benefits over existing temperature loggers.
  Bill Hardgrave, Director, RFID Research Center, University of Arkansas
  Jean-Pierre Emond, Co-director, IFAS Center for Food Distribution and
     Retailing, University of Florida
. An understanding of the current state of RFID technology used in the cold chain
. Critical knowledge about how RFID can be used to improve cold chain operations
  3:15 pm—Preconference Seminars
  Case Study: C.H. Robinson Uses RFID Temperature Sensors
C.H. Robinson Worldwide has run an extensive pilot of RFID temperature sensors in its supply chain. In this session, the company will explain how and where it has been using RFID temperature sensors. It will also reveal the benefits of the technology and explain how it plans to use the technology in the future.
  Richard A. Mosley, Systems Design and Development, C.H. Robinson Worldwide
. How RFID is being used in a real-world supply chain
. The benefits RFID offers over existing cold chain temperature loggers
  4:15 pm—Preconference Seminars
  Quantifying RFID's Cold Chain Benefits
Researchers at the University of Arkansas and the University of Florida have been studying the potential benefits of RFID temperature sensors. Researchers will discuss the findings of various research projects and discuss the challenges in properly implementing a temperature monitoring system. Learn how and where RFID can deliver real benefits in the cold chain today.
  Bill Hardgrave, Director, RFID Research Center, University of Arkansas
  Jean-Pierre Emond, Co-director, IFAS Center for Food Distribution and
     Retailing, University of Florida
. An understanding of the business case for using RFID in the cold chain
. Real-world data results from early implementations of RFID in the cold chain

RFID's Impact in the Cold Chain—Lessons Learned

Researchers at the University of Arkansas have been working with food companies to quantify RFID's potential benefits in the cold chain. The results of their investigation show RFID will have major benefits. Be among the first to learn the results of this groundbreaking research.
  Bill Hardgrave, Director, RFID Research Center, University of Arkansas
. Latest research into RFID's benefits in the cold chain
. Real-world insights about RFID's ability to monitor fresh produce in real time
Wednesday, May 2
  3:20 pm—Breakout Sessions
Case Study—Military Sensors Monitor the World

The U.S. Army has been testing the use of temperature sensor-equipped RFID tags for automated shelf life management of perishable military rations. Its research and development team also is leveraging both passive and active RFID for total asset visibility, supply chain security and food safety throughout storage and distribution. The Army will share the lessons learned from several projects that include RFID sensor based container security devices.
  Stephen M. Moody, RFID Program Coordinator, Combat Feeding
     Directorate, Natick Soldier Research Development & Engineering
     Center, U.S. Army
. How active and passive RFID can be used to enhance supply chain security
. The use of RFID for shelf life management
How Dow Chemical Best Utilizes Technology to Globally Track Assets
RFID in combination with GPS and Auto-ID Technologies provides significant business value when used for global asset track and trace. In this session, learn how the use of certain technologies can compliment RFID's potential to better the entire supply chain process and improve the way the chemical industry does business.
  Craig Casto, Global Auto-ID & Label Technology Leader, Dow Chemical
. System components needed to track chemical assets as they move through the supply chain
. Overall RFID benefits and ROI
