RFID: integrate container logistics and information flow

at the recent work conference on building an innovative transportation industry, Bao Qifan, vice president of Shanghai international port (Group) Co., Ltd., particularly talked about the scientific and technological innovation achievements of Shanghai Port - "container electronic label system". Research on the stress relaxation characteristics of PMMA near the glass transition temperature, he said, as the chairman of the jury of the Paris International Invention Exhibition said after visiting our invention - "container electronic label system": "this will be a revolution to change people's transportation mode"

the "Application of RFID technology in the field of containers" project implemented by Shanghai Port Group uses electronic tags to automatically identify and collect information on containers, integrate the information flow and logistics of container transportation, track information, eliminate wrong and missing containers in the transportation process, improve the speed of container passing through the gate, and record the switching times and time of containers that need signal expansion in the application in real time, So as to improve the working efficiency and safety performance of container transportation. On July 19, at the "Tenth Five Year Plan" National 863 Program project acceptance meeting held by the Ministry of science and technology, the project passed the acceptance of the expert group

at the beginning of 2006, the first batch of containers with "ID card" and "security lock" were installed at Longwu wharf of Shanghai Port Group, and they were loaded on board, and anchored to Yantai, marking the official birth of China's first electronic label container route. Shanghai port group began to carry out the RFID application demonstration of "two ports and one voyage" on the route from Shanghai to Yantai

in this application demonstration, combined with the characteristics of domestic container transportation, the RFID system adopts the dual frequency container active electronic tag system integration technology. The electronic tag chip stores the relevant information of the container and the loaded goods, and can also automatically record the door switch and action route and other information, completely changing the manual operation mode of container flow direction and identification in the transportation process, It has greatly improved the management level and informatization level of container transportation. At present, the application demonstration has completed the real ship operation experiment of more than 5000 standard boxes

electronic labels replace the manifest

the container "manifest", which originally relied on handwritten cargo name, weight and destination port information, has been gradually replaced by electronic labels in Shanghai port

at Shanghai Longwu port company, trailers passed through the crossing and were passing through the Customs by irradiating electronic labels with readers and writers. In only 30 seconds, all information was recorded. This process can also be extended to yard gantry cranes, ship side bridge cranes, etc. The implementation of this system can effectively eliminate the wrong and missing containers in the transportation process, speed up the customs clearance of containers and improve the accuracy of container transportation. How does the system work? Take the export container at Longwu wharf of Shanghai port as an example. At the Jinqiao assembly point, the laptop or PDA connected with the terminal writes the information of the container cargo into the electronic label, pastes the label to the side of the container, and notifies the central control room to register the label box number information; The container truck with electronic tag drives to Longwu port, and the site container location is identified and determined by the crossing base station reader writer, and the small ticket is printed at the same time; The truck drives to the designated storage yard, and the gantry crane starts lifting after receiving the instruction from the crossing. After the electronic tag is read and confirmed to be correct, it is stacked to the designated container location for shipment; After being loaded in the central control room, the container is lifted from the storage yard by the gantry crane. At the same time, the electronic label information of the lifted container is read and checked, loaded on the truck and sent to the shore; The bridge crane lifts the container for loading, reads the electronic tag data at the same time, and loads the container according to the stowage

upgrading container logistics

electronic label technology, which changes the common handwritten form filling method in container transportation in the past, can not only realize the efficient automatic identification of containers, but also realize the effective monitoring and real-time management of container cargo status and transportation information in the transportation process, greatly improve the management level of containers and enhance their security

at present, ports have become an important node in China's modern logistics and supply chain. Among them, container transportation between ports has become an important form of transportation modernization because of its efficiency, convenience and safety. The informatization level of modern container terminals has become a key factor to improve the efficiency of container transportation

"container electronic label application demonstration system and standard" is a national "863" key scientific research project. The research group led by Bao Qifan independently developed this set of container electronic label system with international cutting-edge level. The system uses electronic labels to record the electronic information and logistics information of container goods, and realizes automatic identification, so that the container can carry the electronic information flow at the same time, so as to integrate logistics and information flow. The system can track the information flow and logistics of container transportation in real time, eliminate the wrong and missing containers in the transportation process, improve the speed of customs clearance, and improve the safety and reliability of transportation. At the same time, the system adopts an open information platform to ensure that ports and shipping companies can use the unimpeded social public information system to "seamlessly" connect and share information resources with all partners at home and abroad in real time

At the same time, based on the container electronic label system, after more than four years of efforts, the research group launched the first industrial test of "two ports and one shipping" (Shanghai Hong Kong Longwu company coated the end face of the sample with lubricant (such as engine oil) to Yantai port) with electronic labels in the world on December 3, 2005, and implemented the application demonstration system of "two ports and one shipping" container electronic labels. China's first container route with electronic labels, "Zhehai 32", caused the consequence that the "5" ship with serious frequent flights officially set sail from Yantai. On the route from Shanghai port to Yantai port, automatic identification and real-time information exchange of container transportation links have been fully realized. The results show that the expected goal of the project has been achieved

it is understood that in addition to installing an electronic label similar to the "black box" on all containers coming and going on the route, the research group has built a complete set of perfect application systems in the port areas of the two ports. Realize the real-time collection and automatic identification of container information from bottom to top, wireless data transmission and communication in a wide range of port environment, real-time processing and management of container information, and EDI data exchange to realize the real-time exchange of container information between ports
