This paper describes new opportunities of facilitating container management by the use of RFID technology. The authors approach the papers topic from different perspectives, resulting in entirely different points of view and foci. However, within the frame of interdisciplinary collaboration, it gets apparent a common goal exists, to develop strategies and tools facilitating the work of decision makers in logistics. For this purpose one part addresses the management of returnable containers for the automotive industry. The other part describes the improvement of its automatic and reliable identification by means of the development of a new antenna concept for passive UHF transponders. The described antenna concept has primarily been developed for passive RFID transponders, but it may also be applied for active RFID transponders for increased performance concerning reading and writing ranges and reliability. Moreover, it is possible to utilise the required metallic surface (reflector) in a printing-based manufacturing process to be able to apply the RFID transponder antenna in a functional way to materials having high permittivity, if taken as an example. This can be done due to the fact that the electromagnetic waves coming from the transponder are emitted directional and therefore they enter the subjacent material in the back lobe area of the transponder antenna only slightly. Thus, the obstructive properties of the immediate vicinity are extremely minimised.
