The collaborative Project "RORO MAX" has as objective the development of the Roll-On Roll-Off (RORO) activity of the Grand Port Maritime du Havre (GPMH) [4]. This development through a significant increase in RORO traffic and therefore more intelligent management of this flow. In this context, we have developed a RFID solution-based traceability to better manage the large number of vehicles in import and export, and allow the different RORO terminal actors to use an efficient and robust tool. This paper presents two low-cost developed solutions. A measurement and testing in Indoor and Outdoor environment was conducted to validate the proposed solutions.
