Abstract

The technology of RFID (radio frequency identification) is a important resource of automation and optimization applied to identification methods through radio signals, remotely retrieving and storing data using devices called “tags.” Around the world and in all market segments, the use of this technology grows at an exponential rate. Currently, the main focus from researches is the integration of RFID and other sensor data, not only in the corporate environment, but in the entire value chain of business. Thus, this chapter presents an overview on RFID and demonstrates that its use provides the improvement, development, contribution, quality and speed in processing flows of containers at ports of some cities in the world, representing a powerful technology applied to port logistics.
