Australia military coordinates logistics with Savi
The Australian Defense Force is up and running with a supply chain tracking system that will be able to operate with other NATO and coalition forces in the Middle East, thanks to a software system developed by Mountain View, Calif.-based Savi Technology.
An air freighter carrying the first radio frequency identification-tagged ADF shipments from Australia into the Middle East departed Sydney Airport Wednesday. The shipment marks the full-scale deployment of the 'Track and Trace' ADF network, which is built around an active RFID-tagged pallet and container system.
With Sunnyvale-based Savi's RFID interoperability system already in place with coalition members, the Australian tagged goods will be able to flow seamlessly into supply chain systems for the U.S. Defense Department, NATO, United Kingdom and other coalition forces on the ground in the Middle East.
