The Port of Oakland is turning to radio frequency identification technology to improve the efficiency of its trucking operations and to bolster security. The port announced Tuesday, March 13, that it has been rolling out an active RFID system using tags and readers from WhereNet Corp., a wireless asset tracking and management solutions provider, over the past month.

WhereNet says that it is in the process of distributing RFID tags to trucking companies that ship material to Port of Oakland facilities. The companies are self-installing the tags in the cabs of their vehicles, WhereNet says. The tags will be read by RFID readers as trucks enter the Oakland International Container Terminal, ensuring that all vehicles are identified and tracked while at the facility, port officials say.
