The article reports on the plan of Germany-based chemicals supplier Chemion Logistik to use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in its operations. RFID will be integrated into the bimodal terminal for hazardous goods and in the trimodal port terminal in the near future. The sites will be given radio remote control technology. A RFID pilot project raised storage capacity at the site.
