Where Can I Find an RFID Systems Integrator for the Packaging Industry?

Posted By RFID Journal, 04.21.2011
I need some information about companies specializing in that sector, and I was hoping you could suggest which ones I should contact.

—Daniel (London)


In general, systems integrators operating in the RFID industry do not focus solely on one particular sector. Although some might have a lot of clients in one area, I am unaware of any that focus solely on the packaging sector. One reason for this is that historically, packaging companies have not invested much in RFID systems.

I would suggest you contact several systems integrators—I can certainly recommend a few, if you need me to—and see if they are able to handle your project. You could also contact RFID inlay manufacturers and converters, such as UPM RFID and Avery Dennison. These companies can probably put you in touch with RFID systems integrators that have experience in the packaging industry.

In the meantime, here are a few articles that might be relevant to your project:
