WA to trial RFID tracking of wool bales

Western Australia’s wool clip has been selected to trial the commercial viability of using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to track wool bales. About 40 per cent of WA’s clip will have ultra-high frequency bale tags - that can be read from more than two metres and can withstand dumping - as part of a six-month trial next year which aims to verify Australian Wool Exchange’s e-Bale technology. The Operational Proof of Concept (OPC) will begin early 2018 and will track 150,000 bales, from farm up to point of shipping, prior to commercialisation of the technology.
