The use of advanced RFID tracking methods for insuring the security and integrity of container shipped cargo

MICHAEL J. WILLIAMS AND CHERYL CUNNINGHAM, EMBRY-RIDDLE AERONAUTICAL UNIVERSITY, USA

Abstract: The cargo container has made the commercial world smaller through the efficient shipping of goods across oceans and continents. Along with this efficiency have come unprecedented increases in container traffic with the expected concerns over security and safety, given today’s political climate. This paper presents the initial research of a continuing project designed to study the issue of container safety and security using the information systems technology: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). The scope and depth of the container security issue and the applications of relevant technology will be discussed with emphasis on the latest tracking techniques and processes. Computerized tracking using RFID is a promising technology that is being used with mixed success by various organizations and is the primary focus of this paper.
Keywords: Shipping container security, Information systems, RFID, Transportation security
