Press: Deutsche post tracks international mail with RFID-based readers
"The international movements of shipping envelopes can be even harder to track than the status of large cartons, since envelopes are small, and scanning each envelope's bar-code label is difficult to accomplish at postal hubs. There is no standardized international bar-code system yet in place. As a result postal carriers often use a manual receiving process for incoming international mail, and sometimes re-label registered mail items from abroad. The growing volume of such small parcels that are being shipped makes the need for an automated tracking system even more important," explains Dirk Pandikow, DP's VP of product management mail export and direct entry.
