RFID at HKIA
September 11, 2009
HONG KONG, 8 MAY 2009 ? Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has awarded a three-year contract for 70 million radio frequency identification (RFID)-enabled IATA standard 21 inches (53 cm) baggage tracking tags.
The contract was awarded to Motorola, a communications technology provider, which partnered RFID specialist Avery Dennison RFID and Print-O-Tape, a manufacturer of pressure sensitive label products and raw materials. All three are US-based companies.
HKIA awarded a three-year contract to Motorola, with an option for a fourth year, extending their longstanding relationship. Motorola was instrumental in scoping the original business case, supplying hardware and tags, and implementing the first RFID project at Hong Kong International Airport in 2005.
HKIA uses Motorola?s XR400 and AR400 fixed RFID readers, Motorola MC9090-G RFID handheld mobile computers, and will now utilise Generation-2 baggage tags supplied by this partnership.
