Delivery industry leader City Link uses the AeroScout visibility system to track the location of 22,000 roll cages as part of a logistics solution.
Case study overview
Success in the highly competitive express delivery industry depends on knowing the accurate location of items. To provide a reliable, on-time service, City Link has turned to AeroScout technology to track their transport cages and provide real time location information.
With 73 local control centres as well as a national hub near Birmingham, UK, City Link use over 15,000 roll cages in which to transport the packages and prevent damage. If a roll cage is not available, the shipping process can be delayed – a critical mistake.
With up to 200 vehicles arriving at the main hub at a time, keeping track of the roll cages is a huge project. That’s where AeroScout comes in.
AeroScout worked with JDH Consultancy to deliver a Wi-Fi based active RFID cage management solution to suit City Link’s needs.
