New RFID supported fish box enables seamless tracking & tracing

The Craemer Group, a leading manufacturer of plastic pallets, wheelie bins and containers in Europe, showcases its portfolio of innovative products for the fishing industry and presents a product innovation: The first fish box with integrated RFID transponder that facilitates complete tracking and tracing.

By developing this new and innovative RFID supported, patent pending solution, the Craemer Group offers a new generation of fish box that will make process sequences throughout the entire transport and logistics chain simpler, faster and more transparent. The new “intelligent” fish box and the integrated RFID transponder enable companies operating within the supply chain to identify, track and trace information about fish, fishing grounds, quality and size of the catch. The collected information flows directly to the fish auction information system. This enables potential buyers to buy the fish before the trawler puts into harbour, thus saving time and ensuring the fish is taken faster to its destination. As a consequence, it is possible to transparently track the fish products throughout the entire process from its catching and auctioning to its final selling.

Guaranteed quality - highest level of safety, seamless transparency

Particularly interesting: There is no need to buy the transponder when buying the new fish boxes; it is easy to retrofit the transponders to the new fish boxes at any time. In addition to the forward-looking technology, the new Craemer fish boxes offer an optimized drainage system that manages water drainage to the front side as well as an optimized base geometry for quick and easy drainage. Improved stackability and user-friendly handgrips make the Craemer fish box secure and strong by design. Of course the new Craemer fish boxes are 100% compatible with all standard fish boxes available on the market.

The background for this new product development is the increasing focus on food safety and traceability in the logistics chain. This has recently resulted in new EU regulation that now requires fish to be labeled and governs food safety and the complete traceability of fish catches. With its latest development of an “intelligent” fish box, the Craemer Group offers the first marketable RFID solution that facilitates seamless and reliable tracking and tracing capabilities in accordance with these EU regulations. With over 35 years of experience as a reliable supplier to the fishing industry, the Craemer Group is known for always developing cutting edge products that fulfil latest market requirements. Additionally to the presentation of the new fish box, the Craemer group will showcase its complete range of innovative products for the fishing industry, including plastic pallets and varied transport and container solutions.
