Fluensee has formed a strategic agreement with 4Front Engineered Solutions for the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) in yard management. Fluensee provides a variety of RFID asset tracking and supply-chain management tools; 4Front is a designer and manufacturer of safety, productivity and environmental control products for loading dock and warehouse applications.
