Edition 51
Our 51st edition looks at how the expansion of the Panama Canal will affect global cargo flows, and the changing role of the Suez Canal. The edition also contains a focus on optimising automated container terminals, and the most effective use of tandem operation and double cycling in container handling.
Radio Frequency Identification – or, as it is more commonly known, RFID – is an automated identification and data collection (AIDC) technology. From access cards to passports to toll tags, RFID has become a ubiquitous, integral part of our daily lives both at work and at home. RFID offers unique benefits for the identification and tracking of people, assets and inventory. It provides automated identification without the line of sight required by bar code and optics (laser, OCR), can be read at short to very long range and can be encoded with significant amounts of data. Few AIDC technologies can match its flexibility and cost/benefit ratio.
