Metropolitan Police tags

Posted by: David Holt

Once they are secured to the bags, the tags, which are water and shock resistant, are difficult to remove and the printed outer makes the security tag element very evident. IP says it actually specialise in making components for packaging. It just so happens the RFID tags are being attached to equipment packs being used by the Met Police to track the secure distribution of equipment through their internal supply chain.

The decision to make the pack tags so robust was primarily to make them tamper proof but also to make them reusable. The company sees this product being suitable for multi-stop, re-pack applications - such as white goods and electronics - and also (and probably more significantly) for traceability and warehouse management systems.
