Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


The central contribution of this paper is to present the status and the perspectives of RFID in ocean container transport. To accomplish this, we report the following: (a) the problem area and expected changes; (b) RFID and container ID fundamentals; (c) the RFID status quo in container transportation; (d) RFID perspectives in the ocean container industry; and (e) concluding observations and suggestions for consideration. We, preliminarily, note that the aforesaid tasks will be examined factoring the trend that ocean container carriers transform themselves from sea transport providers to total door-to-door logistics providers.
