Shipment Verification with Dock Door RFID Technology

Tracking where it counts; the point of Entry and Exit.

Industrial RFID portals with Fixed Readers for Shipment Verification: Shipping and Receiving


RFID Dock Door Applications

Using RFID at entry and exit portals can create an efficient automated tracking system to capture real-time data from several key intervals in the supply chain process such as the beginning of the product lifecycle site, to the cross-dock logistics facility and then to the retail stores. By using an RFID Dock Door solution, facilities will have accurate and instant visibility of the assets and products being transported.

There are many ways to achieve 99.9% Track and Trace Accuracy with Dock Door RFID Solutions. Though requirements may vary by facility, generally your organization will need to start with the following base strategy.

Setting up your assets/products with RFID tags: RFID tags are attached to the asset or product you are looking to track.


Positioning reads/scans at appropriate stages: Tags are scanned and processed at key intervals in the supply chain. They feed real-time track and trace information to the cloud.


Cloud-Based Integration or Stand-Alone: By using the cloud that is integrated, mobile workers can retrieve information and also capture data on RFID-enabled devices to scan tags and complete orders that will then be sent back through the cloud to trigger alerts or notifications within your current business systems.


Methods for reads/scans:

  • RFID portals at entry or exit doors will read tags in seconds with 100% read rate

  • Entry and Exit will be read-only when going through and not upon approach

  • Adjacent dock door has separate ‘cross reads’

  • Optional Handheld rugged devices provide each mobile worker the scanning capability to process information

AB&R®’s Solution Process

Site Survey & SRDS

Phase I

In Phase I, AB&R® experts analyze your operation and environment to begin developing a solution. It starts with a site survey which allows our team to understand exactly where your pain points lie. Once the site survey is complete, we move into the System Requirement & Design Study (SRDS). During the SRDS our technical team will determine exactly what hardware and software work best in your environment. In this sample SRDS, we examine a proposed solution for a company that wants to better track their fabrication employee’s progress. The current system has them manually entering updates.


Phase II

Once all the data is gathered from Phase I, the pilot phase can begin. At this point, our team of engineers will begin placing and testing equipment. As the solution is tested, more data accumulates, and our team will make the adjustments to achieve the expected outcome.


Phase III

The problem has been assessed, a solution has been developed, and rigorously tested. We are ready for Phase III, full implementation. This includes installing all of the hardware, wiring, software, and training your team to comfortably handle all of the new tools they’ll be using on a regular basis. AB&R® provides future follow up strategies to validate the performance of the solution and evaluation of ROI.
