The new tags, which can be simultaneously read even when containers are stacked during shipping inspections, represent a vast improvement over previous barcodes systems that required individual scanning to monitor the quantity and types of containers being transported.

Nikken Lease Kogyo intends to use these tags on rental roll containers to provide increased efficiency in the logistics operations of its customers.
