Norwegian Truck-Body Manufacturer Offers Trailers Equipped with RFID Technology

Bussbygg, a truck and semi-trailer body works company, has teamed with transport firm Fosen Transport and RFID provider HRAFN for an ongoing trial of an RFID-enabled refrigerated trailer and cloud-based software system that tracks the locations of palletized products within a truck's cargo area or the trailer hitched to that vehicle, and also ensures that the pallets are delivered to the correct customer.

Bussbygg makes and sells 250 custom fiberglass refrigerated trailers annually. The company says its trailers cost more than traditional metal trailers commonly used in other parts of Europe, but offer higher value since the fiberglass provides better insulation to keep the cold products inside the trailer cold. Fiberglass trailers offer another advantage, the company has found: They are more compatible with radio frequency identification technology.
