UHF RFID in Food Distribution Center

The COOP distrubution center in Norway is on of the most modern in Skandinavia

The distribution centre of the COOP grocery retailer in Norway – planned and implemented by intralogistics specialists Witron – is one of the most modern distribution centres in Scandinavia. To better manage the operation, Witron implemented a combined barcode-RFID identification system using Turck's UHF-RFID technology.

With the concentrated know-how of both companies, even the crosstalk that occurs when several neighboring UHF antennas are in operation could be prevented.

Key Facts

  • The system enables a seamless identification for the entire production and supply chain – e.g. the entire cold chain can be documented on one tag
  • Crosstalk and false reads are prevented by RSSI filters and software logic
  • The use of integrated UHF tag in the plastic pallets saves the installation of additional barcode labeling systems
  • The system requires 250 UHF read/ write heads


  • UHF RFID systems from Turck are used mainly in logistics
  • Combined UHF systems with 2D- and/or barcode identification are perfectly used for serialisation in the pharmaceutical industry as well
