Wärtsilä Marine Solutions Engines Project instructions on RFID tagging
Starting from December 2014, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions Engines Projects require that its packages have RFID tags in order to have high supply chain visibility. Existing way of packing and labelling remain unchanged.
A case label with RFID tag looks like this (bottom left corner):
1) Packing and labelling
General packing instructions must firstly be followed (see Packing Marking Instructions).
Supplier then informs readiness of goods by sending a completed preliminary packing list template to Wärtsilä purchaser. There are templates for 10-case and 20-case (to insert data, first click “Enable Editing” if you are using Microsoft Office 2010 onward).
After receiving final packing list and case label from purchaser, please follow the instructions on case labelling and RFID tag placement. Purchaser may require supplier to put also an RFID information sign on top of the case.
RFIDs tag rolls are sent to you by post. In case RFID-tag rolls are not received or if they are running out soon, please contact Wärtsilä. Our support personnel are Mr. Hieu Ta Minh (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ms. Linda Masus (email@example.com).
2) RFID tag registration
The video below provides a quick guide to RFID tag registration. We recommend you to use a barcode reader to avoid typing mistakes.
