Point-to-Point PIDC Traceback for Freight Guarantees Source Verification

Applying RFID and barcode labeling technology, and Web-based Site-Specific Recordkeeping™, closes the Homeland “security gaps” in national and International freight container shipping in every country around the world.

(PRWEB) July 17, 2005 -- By applying RFID and barcode technology in labeling drums, pallets, bins, and RPCs that are used in transporting foods, fruits, and vegetable crops, ScoringAg's Internet-based databank is able to maintain a complete, Point-to-Point Traceback™ transport record in real time. Accessing the information stored in the RFID and barcode label and the associated Web-based databank enables positive identification of the container's contents, source, destination, handlers and shippers, and other data required to maintain security and proper schedules for these critical entities.

Because sales import and export of food items has become a global business, ScoringAg's entity tracking of freight items has become essential in the extremely important effort of securing the worldwide food supply from source to final destination, thus protecting the supply chain from disruption by bio-terrorists. This applies to everything on our dinner tables, from bulk grains and fresh fruits and vegetables, to all types of meats and processed foods – all the things we routinely eat that are exposed to a wide variety of transport and handling stages.

ScoringSystem's unique, patented tracking and traceback system utilizes the latest in RFID and 2D expandable barcode labeling technology, in combination with a global Web-based databank to capture detailed history and source verification of package handlers, shippers, and storage facilities in their use of reusable RPCs, bins, pallets, and drums to satisfy FDA and Homeland Security rules, as well as all national and International import / export regulations.

Using Web-based RFID and barcode labeling for supply chain management, Point-to-Point Traceback™ of products at all shipping stages secures the entire food supply chain. All transporters, trucks, trailers and dock loaders are part of the record of movement from one unique Premises ID Code (PIDC) to the next unique PIDC (point to point along the chain) for positive source verification. The label's 2D barcode also maintains other data for perishable commodities linked to a traceback record, helping to comply with FDA, USDA, and International regulations easily, securely, and at very low cost. and its traceback and traceup system, featuring Site-Specific Recordkeeping™ and PIDC location code, is one of the many divisions of ScoringSystem, Inc., which is located in Sarasota, Florida USA and specializes in providing solutions with mobile data, via wireless PDAs, laptops, and Semacode-programmed Nokia, Siemens, and Sony Ericsson cell phones. RFID and barcode labeling, and for tracking and traceback of transport containers with perishable commodities and other consumer goods makes managing container tracking information easier and more secure – and does it in an extremely cost effective manner.
