SGS Plans Cold-Chain RFID Deployments in Africa

SGS, a Geneva, Switzerland-based inspection, verification, testing and certification services company, is currently in discussions with several businesses in Africa to track cold-chain goods as they are transported by truck, thereby identifying or preventing thefts. African agencies and oil companies have already been using the Savi Technology radio frequency identification-based solution from SGS, known as OMNIS, to provide traceability of oil and gas shipments. The technology enables users to manage the location of their cargo, such as oil and gas, and to confirm that it has not been tampered with as it is moved in tanker trucks through the supply chain, down roads and across borders. The OMNIS system has reduced the loss of cargo for the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) and other agencies.
