Finnish specialist software provider Stockway is co-operating with Stora Enso to develop a smart packaging solution based on Radio Frequency Identification technology.
Stora Enso’s track-and-trace application will be based on Stockway’s Trackway RFID software. “Currently, we use Trackway in CD and DVD packaging, to improve the flow of information about goods shipped to our customer CD-Linja,” says Ingrid Rokahr, smart packaging project manager. “This has demonstrated that the system works efficiently in a commercial production environment and has increased the customer’s satisfaction.”
Stockway ceo Jari Kaitera adds: “Trackway enables on-line identification of products anywhere in the world. The unprecedented real-time view into the supply chain can be shared by the trading partners in a secure and controlled environment. This contributes to more efficient business transactions and improved product safety and integrity.
“The demand for RFID solutions is increasing in different areas of business,” he continues. “Our track-and-trace application will be particularly valuable for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, media and certain food packaging applications.”
Ingrid Rokahr adds: “Everybody benefits from seamless logistics. Furthermore, in the pharmaceutical and food industries smart packaging allows access control and condition monitoring, which contribute to better product safety. In pharmaceutical packaging, tracking also helps to prevent counterfeiting activities. Even patient compliance with the prescription can be improved through smart packaging features.”
