Automotive Supply Chain Data Ecosystem

What is the Automotive Supply Chain Data Ecosystem?

Spurred by on-going needs of the automotive industry to track returnable containers between Tier 1 suppliers and OEMs, AIAG has recently formed a work group to address this issue. A new system has been developed called the Automotive Supply Chain Data Ecosystem. The system uses RFID tags on returnable containers, combined with RFID readers and a digital data platform to track containers as they move through the supply chain.

As an automotive supplier, you may soon be required to implement the Automotive Supply Chain Data Ecosystem or a similar system to track returnable containers. An end-to-end RFID system from Radley Corporation can help you achieve compliance while providing additional data for your business.

Which System is Right for You?


As it only tracks when a container returns to the supplier site, the data hub included in the Automotive Supply Chain Data Ecosystem does NOT provide key information on your returnable containers:

  • Where are my containers located in the warehouse?
  • In what condition are my containers?
  • What is the total value of my containers?
  • From which vendor did I purchase my containers and when?
  • What is the total dwell and cycle time of my containers?

Radley’s Container Tracking with RFID solution lets you complete the circle with full access to your data. The Radley data collection solution fully integrates to the Automotive Supply Chain Data Ecosystem with no interruption to your business processes. You can comply with OEM requirements (Honda, Toyota, etc.) and meet AIAG standards too!

  • Track inventory
  • Real-time Notifications
  • Preventative Maintenance
  • Dwell & Cycle Time Reports
  • Complete Asset History
