Hong Kong and Shenzhen have a very close relationship in land logistic operations. According to the survey of the Commerce, Industry and Technology Bureau of HKSAR in 2007, in terms of trade value, cargo transported by the road mode from the Mainland account for about one third of the goods entering Hong Kong. Due to the lack of system integration and the absence of suitable logistics enabling technology, there are few cost-effective and automatic logistics solutions in Hong Kong and Shenzhen.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Electronic Seal (eSeal) technologies can facilitate and enhance current logistics operations, mainly in border control, customs clearance operations. Currently these kinds of technologies are not mature enough to support total automation in logistics operations or to achieve supply chain visibility. Hence, more advanced logistics management platform and related hardware (such as RFID and eSeal) should be developed, in order to support the increasing demand for global and local logistics operations, and also to enhance the competitive advantage of Hong Kong’s logistics industry.

With funding from the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, and the support from various industrial collaborators, the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) launched in 2008 a project titled “Development and Implementation of an RFID-based Solution and an Intelligent eSecurity Device for Physical Asset, Container and Fleet Management.
