ENFIT-GID - Global ITEM-ID
Pier to pier and real time communication
Millions and millions of transport containers are used worldwide every day for the transport of raw materials, food, animal feed, chemicals and other goods. As a rule, these are 20 and 40 foot containers, reefer containers, 20 foot tank containers, road tankers and silo vehicles, railway tank wagons, trucks and box vehicles, IBCs, crates and boxes and much more.
20 or 40 foot containers and tank containers are provided with a "BIC" number. Road vehicles are usually identified by their registration number and IBCs are given different individual numbers.
ENFIT is the first authorized and globally active non-profit organization to create an ENFIT-GID standard (ITEM-ID) and to develop and establish the GID label for identifying transport units. The GID label is made of a special high-pressure and acid-resistant, self-adhesive plastic and is therefore particularly suitable as a permanent sticker. ENFIT generates and manages the unique, non-overlapping ID numbers. (ITEM IDs).
With the use of the bulkvision blockchain cloud technology, the GID becomes a communicator between the owner and the service provider (logistics, cleaning, depot, inspection, repair, loader and unloader) using smartphones or tablets (Android, iOS). In addition to direct "real-time communication", the transport units can be tracked worldwide with the GID (POI) and incoming and outgoing checklists can be created and processed. Regularly recurring inspections are actively carried out on the smartphone or tablet and the inspection reports and checklists are added directly to the digital twin. Information on loading and unloading (product information) and the digital transmission of delivery documents and/or safety data sheets and security seals is possible without the parties involved having to exchange paper documents.
