Automotive Data Ecosystem

What is the Automotive Data Ecosystem?

The automotive industry has a notorious lack of visibility to returnable containers between Tier 1 suppliers and OEMs. Because of this, Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) has recently formed a work group to address the issue.
A new supply chain management system has been developed called the Automotive Data Ecosystem. The system uses RFID readers along with RFID tags on returnable containers. Then, a digital data platform tracks containers through the supply chain.

As an automotive supplier, you may soon be required to use a system to track returnables. This may include either the Automotive Data Ecosystem or a similar system to track returnable containers. An end-to-end RFID system from Radley Corporation can help you achieve compliance. At the same time, the system provides 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 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 lets you complete the circle with full access to your data. The Radley solution integrates to the Automotive Data Ecosystem with no interruption to your business processes. Plus, 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
