Trilliott Garners Top Supply Chain Award

Updated: Nov 26


September 28, 2021— At RFID Journal Live 2021 in Phoenix, Arizona, Trilliott and Schaeffler USA were awarded Best RFID/IoT Implementation in Supply Chain/Logistics Finalist, based on the deployment of SmartSITE for Supply Chain™ at Schaeffler. In making the prestigious industry award, RFID Journal Awards judges considered the following criteria.

  • How much value does SmartSITE deliver to the Schaeffler business?

  • Does it cut costs, reduce shipping errors or improve on-time deliveries?

  • Does it make employees more productive?

  • Does it enable the organization to deliver products just-in-time?

  • Does the use of RFID go beyond what other supply chain organizations have done?

  • Is the solution scalable and economically feasible?

  • Is the solution a significant improvement over alternatives?

While Schaeffler's SmartSITE deployment was a finalist, Booth Kalmbach, Trilliott Founder & CEO, noted, "the winner was Lockheed Martin. Lockheed’s use of RFID is extensive and impressive, but there’s a big difference in the Lockheed and Schaeffer situations. To get to this level Lockheed spent a decade and millions in hardware and internal software development. SmartSITE put Schaeffler on the map in a few months."
