Abstract

Since the transport of goods was entrusted to third parties, there was a need to mark the goods. From the initially primitive methods to the present day, where the waybill plays a key role in transport logistics, the ways of freights significance have undergone significant evolution. One of the most important steps was, among others, the standardization of packaging and the appearance of EUR pallets. The introduction of IT tools, globalization of services including not only transport but also packaging management, storage services, redistribution of goods, insurance services and many more, create new development prospects. The logistic tools that are currently applicable to the expanding logistics area and the requirements are becoming insufficient. Thus, the industry is waiting not only for another evolution but more likely for a revolution. The change of the transport logistics model, in particular in the context of returnable packaging, resulted in the emergence of, among others, pallet pools on the market. New models, extended services and innovative economy 4.0 require new technical solutions. One of such solutions may be the introduction of a digital transport pallet. The assumption of this solution is a global exchange of information regarding the packaging along with the content, transport conditions as well as the current geographical position. The article presents problems resulting from marking goods, potential methods of freight monitoring, and proposes a new solution for permanent marking of transport pallets with radio tags. A built-in technology demonstrator was also presented.
