GS1 EPCglobal Implementation Guidelines
EPCglobal’s implementation guidelines aim to streamline particular processes according to standardized practices. One of the goals of the guidelines is to drive EPC adoption by easing the implementation of RFID using existing standards.
The GS1 EPCglobal Transportation and Logistics Industry User Group Implementation Guide- TLS Pilots reviews the transportation and logistics related processes from the point of cargo leaving the production factory until it reaches the destination warehouse. The scope of this paper will be limited to the findings, suggestions and practices based on the previous three phases of the TLS global pilot projects. It includes the operations process at origin and destination warehouse, yard, departure and arriving terminal, Import / Export clearance process as well as land transportation. Operation processes or issues within the production plant or factory and retail store are excluded
This guideline contains detailed descriptions of multi-party business use cases that consider the need for identification and management of pallets and requirements for what data is to be captured in user memory portion of tag, how it is to be maintained as well as security considerations.
