Application Example - Beer Keg Tracking
kegs are tagged with TIRIS to automate the supply chain and to track the
whereabouts of these valuable items.
A hotel or pub cannot now claim they 'did not receive' that keg because the delivery driver logged it off the waggon and into their establishment, thus providing a mechanisim for recovering the cost of the item should it go 'missing'
Other returnable items such as special pallets or other transport structures
can similaly be tagged to ensure their safe return.
There are now over 30 million TIRIS transponders in the field automatically identifying and tracking products, people, livestock and assets.
