Air Canada Cargo deploys piece-level RFID tracking

CargoAware, a division of Franwell, Inc., the proven leader in radio frequency identification (RFID) track and trace technologies, announced today that Air Canada Cargo is moving forward with implementation of a large-scale RFID implementation that will track cargo and mail shipments across additional stations in its network. Initial implementation and solution validation was agreed to in September of 2015, with Montreal Canada and Frankfurt Germany being the first two stations installed, at that time. Boston is now on-line, with Chicago being installed. Franwell will be partnering with Jamison RFID, View Technologies and other strategic partners to provide the air cargo services provider with a complete, end-to-end RFID RTLS tracking solution.

Air Canada Cargo is Canada’s largest provider of air cargo services, and provides direct shipping to more than 150 cities in Canada, the US and around the world. The company will use the RFID solution, developed and implemented by Franwell, to track cargo at the piece level associated to a RFID-tagged ULD. Freight is tracked as it moves through the warehouse and to and from the tarmac using RAIN RFID (passive UHF) labels, providing real-time, hands-free shipment location updates.
