Executing Daimler RFID processes directly in SAP

Daimler would like to automatically receive incoming goods with RFID technology and, thus, streamline the process. If you as a supplier for Daimler use SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA, you can use our innovative SPEEDI Daimler RFID solution to integrate and map the RFID requirements of this manufacturer in the SAP system. The result is an end-to-end IT-supported, automated, transparent, and thus very efficient solution.

SPEEDI Daimler RFID: All the advantages at a glance

The business benefits you derive from the SPEEDI “Daimler RFID” solution are diverse and offer a real added value.

•  Handling Daimler’s RFID processes in the SAP software, whether in SAP ERP or
   under SAP S/4HANA, reduces manual activities to a minimum.
•  End-to-end IT support enables secure and error-free RFID processes in accordance
   with the Daimler requirements, positively affecting your evaluation as a supplier.
•  The efforts and costs for the development, installation, and maintenance
   of an SAP-based in-house development or an Excel solution are eliminated.

If you as a supplier supply Daimler with components for series production, two different RFID processes must be mapped in the SAP software: one for special load carriers (SLCs), and one for universal load carriers (ULCs). The functionality of SPEEDI Daimler RFID is briefly described below.


Would you like to execute the Daimler RFID processes efficiently and transparently, and thus obtain the greatest possible benefits, regardless of whether you use SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA? We look forward to advising you. Please feel free to call or e-mail us.

RFID process for special load carriers

Daimler RFID-Smart-Label

Daimler equips the special load carriers, which move between their plants and the suppliers in fixed circuits, with a fixed RFID tag (on-metal or smart label) in accordance with VDA 5501. The tag contains an identification number (ID), which can be used to identify a load carrier uniquely and which must be transmitted in the ASN.

SPEEDI Daimler RFID integrates these ID numbers directly in the field provided in the electronic shipping notifications according to VDA 4913 or VDA 4987. As a prerequisite, the RFID code has already been read in via scanner software and stored in the SAP handling unit (SAP HU).

The SPEEDI solution displays, which IDs and thus load carriers are recorded in the SAP HU. At the same time, it checks whether the load carriers have reached the HU user status assigned during the scan, for example, “Load Start” or “Load End.” Traffic lights inform the end-user about the current transport status of the load carriers. If red, processing is stopped.

RFID process for universal load carriers

The back of the material tags (VDA 4902 label) for universal cargo carriers is provided with a single-use RFID tag. It must be printed with the ID of the associated load carrier in accordance with the Daimler specifications. SPEEDI Daimler RFID automatically generates this package ID (license plate) and stores it in the SAP HU.

To assign the Daimler RFID label correctly, code the RFID tag with this ID, and to print the label, the SPEEDI Label Engine provides the print program. To ensure that the ID is also shown on the advanced shipping notice (ASN), we at WSW Software offer corresponding mappings and mapping specifications.
