Crate-ID ™

Crate-ID™ is a concept, developed by VistaLink, for counting and recognising reusable Transit Items (RTIs). It is designed for use in the logistics and distribution industry to trace both incoming and outgoing crates. Apart from vision technology, which is used for recognising the crates, Crate-ID™ can optionally be equipped with RFID technology in partnership with Aucxis.

With millions of RTIs being stolen, mislaid or damaged, the use of deposits has increased the incentive to count – upon arrival – all RTIs in use and to follow and possibly trace them.

With Crate-ID™, scanning, counting and identifying takes only seconds, with a precision better than 99.9%.
