  • TAGS

As a supplier, you may have been asked (or likely soon will be) to tag items for one or more retailers. To satisfy retailer requirements and understand how RFID may provide a payback for a supplier, there are many questions to ask, such as: How do you get started? Where in the supply chain should items be tagged? How are tags affixed to merchandise? How are tags encoded with an Electronic Product Code? What read points are necessary within a manufacturing facility or distribution center to meet requirements and, more importantly, to generate payback on an investment? This session will explore these and many other questions pertaining to suppliers' use of radio frequency identification.
