Automate shipment tracking to deliver on customer expectations and increase the speed of operations

Things move quickly in a global marketplace. With shipments moving around the world, distribution centers and ports need to operate at optimal efficiency to ensure goods reach the correct destination. Manual tracking of inbound and outbound shipments can no longer keep pace with the speed of business or navigate disruptions. Shipping systems built by Impinj partners enable fast, efficient operations.

A platform for shipment verification solutions

The Impinj platform uses RAIN RFID—a wireless technology that provides unique identifiers for individual items, operates without batteries, and reads thousands of items instantly without direct line-of-sight. Shipping, logistics and IoT solutions enabled by the Impinj platform connect data about the shipments moving through distribution channels to existing enterprise management systems. Each shipment moving through distribution is identified, enabling smart inventory and agile supply management.​

  • Connect real-time data about items passing through dock doors with the systems that run shipping and receiving
  • Identify shipments while moving, without direct line-of-sight, as they move through dock doors
  • Gain insights that can further automate processes and drive operational efficiency

Operate at peak efficiency and without unnecessary stops

An automated shipment verification system powered by Impinj tracks shipments at the speed of operations and eliminates the need to stop and check a load for barcodes to scan. Dramatically increase efficiency with an automated system that keeps a team moving at the speed of work. 

Accurately load the right items on the right truck every time

Go from 99 to 100 percent accuracy for next-level operations. Read tags on pallets, cases, or items and alert teams when a shipment is incomplete, contains the wrong items, or is loaded on the wrong truck. Extend verification from staging to loading to eliminate any opportunity for error.

Flexible installation options solve real-world constraints

Choose the installation option that works best for your facility. Install readers in any doorway with options for above, between, or beside doors. Set up your facility with the configuration that works best for your environment, meets project goals, increases safety, and reduces accidents.


Drive Speed and Accuracy in Your Supply Chain

Work smarter, not harder. The Impinj RAIN RFID platform delivers accurate, real-time data about the movement of goods across your operations.
