October 15, 2007—PC World reports on comments made by Ron Moser, Wal-Mart's RFID strategy leader, at the Taiwan International RFID Applications Show last week in Taipei. Following are highlights:
The first initiative will see suppliers tag pallets destined for a Sam's Club distribution center in Texas. With RFID infrastructure embedded in the DC's forklifts and shelves, the retailer will be able to track the pallet putaway process, something currently managed with bar codes. The second initiative is promotions tracking, for which Wal-Mart suppliers running promotions will tag the cases and pallets of the promoted products. (Promotions tracking has emerged as a sweet spot for RFID, since the correct, timely placement of in-store promotions has long been sloppily executed and hard to enforce.) The last initiative will focus on tagging all products within a particular category; in this case, air fresheners.
