UPS invests in RFID asset tracking

Antony Savvas

Parcel giant UPS has taken a stake in US-based G2 Microsystems, which makes radio frequency identification (RFID) chips for managing and tracking mobile devices over Wi-Fi networks. 

Such “mobile-resource management” allows businesses to track mobile hardware assets worldwide to monitor their usage and update their security. 

G2 Microsystems is developing a low-power chip-based asset tracking system called SmarTag.

The technology uses location-based tracking by tapping into Wi-Fi hotspots, which could include warehouses, offices and delivery locations.

UPS drivers and staff currently use a range of mobile devices to manage and track deliveries.
