An international high-end clothing designer operates locations throughout the world. With the goals of gaining greater visibility into its products’ supply chain, from distribution center to stores, and of better preventing theft, the company has installed an RFID-enabled system at all 70 of its stores on multiple continents, as well as at three third-party DCs. Hangtags with embedded RFID tags are being attached to garments at the factory where the goods are manufactured, after which the clothing is boxed and sent to a distribution center. As boxes of merchandise arrive at one of the RFID-enabled DCs, a reader captures each tag’s ID number. The tags are then read again when the DC ships the goods to a store. Learn how the system provides supply chain visibility, fast point-of-sale processing and security at the store doors.
