Partner News: Surgere Launches IoT Technology Suite to Make the Connection Between Parts, Racks, and Trailers More Cost Effective

Surgere, a supply chain solutions company, brings visibility to parts inside trailers making the supply chain more efficient by verifying receipt and location of parts and vehicles between facilities in real time.

Green, OH – – Surgere has launched an IoT technology suite to make the connection between parts, racks, and trailers at automotive plants more cost effective. This technology reduces the time used to manually check inventory on trailers, creating more efficiency within the plant. Surgere’s RFID tags are placed on trailers and read with Surgere-certified hardware to capture tag reads at all entry and exit points at any maintenance yard. Together, this technology provides real-time updates on when or if the trailer has left the yard and when it arrives at its destination.

“This is the first step into a broader over-the-road visibility market,” said Robert Fink, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer at Surgere. “Supply Chain professionals across the globe lack visibility of their parts as they travel from location to location. This real-time visibility creates an autonomous process, making life easier for yard managers to know exactly what parts they have and where they are.” 

The deployed Surgere solution is a patented approach to localization that fuses RFID and GPS technologies. The Surgere- coded RFID tags and the Surgere-certified hardware allows for a 99.9% acquisition rate for trailers and racks. The RFID tags are hardened tags for weatherproofing. The solution was tested for the environment prior to deployment.
