Do you know of any that have deployed a radio frequency identification system—and, if so, for what purposes?

I am unaware of any travel agencies that have deployed an RFID solution. In the United States, a travel agency is a business that sells tours and books airline tickets for customers; such companies usually do not have much in the way of physical assets that require tracking. One application that might make sense, though, would be to utilize the technology to track documents. For a large travel agency chain, monitoring IT assets might make sense as well. In addition, for an agency that manages a bus fleet, there might be some other benefits to employing RFID. For example, the technology could be used to manage spare parts across multiple locations.
