Discover how supply chain automation
is transforming retail and logistics operations


Achieve full visibility and control with accurate, automated high-speed systems


Leverage accurate, automated high-speed systems for peak efficiency


A platform for supply chain 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. Supply chain automation and IoT solutions enabled by the Impinj platform connect the goods moving through the supply chain to systems that manage them. Each shipment moving through the supply chain can be identified as it moves enabling smart inventory and agile supply management.

  • Count inventory as it moves through the supply chain to know the location of everything in real-time
  • Get new visibility into system disruptions to react quickly, route products, and solve delays
  • Read items as they move on conveyers at standard speeds regardless of orientation

How Impinj enables RAIN RFID supply chain automation

Tag Goods

Attach Impinj-powered RAIN RFID tags to goods and containers. Tags can be read at a distance and without line-of-sight.

Read Goods

Impinj readers installed on conveyors or doorways read and identify goods and containers as they move in and between facilities.

See Goods

See data about the movement of goods in your existing shipping system and receive alerts when errors occur.

Track goods moving across all locations

With end-to-end tracking across beltways and conveyors, operators gain visibility into all parts of a supply chain to know where inventory is located and can see disruptions and slow-downs as they happen. Unlock next-level efficiency and new insights with visibility into every thing moving within and across all locations in your supply chain. 

Streamline and simplify distribution centers

Reading barcodes requires line-of-sight and expensive robots that flip packages to orient them correctly. With a system enabled by Impinj, identify moving items without line-of-sight as they move on conveyors, hand trucks, or forklifts. Operate a smart system that streamlines and simplifies operations and identifies every item correctly, every time. 

Eliminate picking and shipping errors

Backtracking because of errors is not just costly. It reduces trust in the whole system. Prevent packing and shipping errors with instant audits of items prepared for shipping, and eliminate the need to handle items multiple times. Teams work efficiently and customers get what they expect. Eliminating errors and building trust are just two of the many ways an investment in supply chain automation enabled by Impinj pays dividends across an organization.
