January 5, 2005—Thought Social Security might be a dying animal? Think again. While the rest of the U.S. media is debating the program's merits and long-term viability, USA TODAY ran an article yesterday profiling the Social Security Administration's cutting edge RFID plans.

A portable tunnel equipped with RFID readers has already been built to be used at both the shipping and receiving portals of the warehouse. Like so many supply chain RFID initiatives, the idea is to have shipment data updated automatically and in real time. System Concepts of High Point, North Carolina, was contracted to design the new system, which is averaging read rates of 90%.
