Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) specialist Goodpack has begun the implementation of RFID tagging of every unit.

With a significant investment of US$6.5 million in this technology, Goodpack is making a commitment to tracking its fleet of over 2.3 million IBCs and ensuring correct customer billing.

The information will also be used to prevent loss of IBCs and monitor wear and tear so that timely maintenance can be done on them.

"The added advantage to Goodpack’s customers is that they too will be able to use this technology to track their products by IBC through their own logistics tracking systems," says Goodpack Australaisa’s
David Elson.

"This is the latest step in administration efficiency that has recently seen the introduction of a SAP accounting system."

Goodpack is principally engaged in the business of renting its patented, multi-model, returnable metal box system, rented locally and de-hired globally.

The company has a worldwide presence in over 68 counties through a global network of subsidiaries and regional offices.

Goodpack provides a comprehensive service of delivery and collection of the IBC and technical support to all clients globally.

IBCs are constructed from steel and galvanised to ensure strength, durability, and longevity.

"Goodpacks are uniquely design to maximise the cargo capacity of a standard shipping container that will hold 16 Goodpacks each with a cargo of up to 1,500 kilograms," Elson says.

It is expect that the tagging of Goodpacks IBCs with RFID tags will be completed within the next eighteen months.
