Companies will be required to put RFID tags on shipments to the U.S. Department of Defense and airplane makers Boeing and Airbus. This track focuses on how to meet tagging mandates and achieve benefits internally and across the supply chain.
Companies across industries are using RFID to achieve major benefits, both in their supply chains and in their factory operations. This can be done cost-effectively by tracking reusable containers, work in process and finished inventory.
Companies across the retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) supply chain have been among the early adopters of RFID and EPC technologies. Many are already seeing early benefits and are prepared to share their insights at RFID Journal LIVE!
Perhaps in no other industry is RFID's potential ROI as clear as in pharmaceuticals. Whether it is reducing counterfeiting, complying with new and existing regulations, reducing liabilities or gaining unprecedented efficiencies, early adopters are finding RFID can deliver huge benefits.
Supply Chain and logistics companies will play a key role in ensuring end-to-end visibility in the supply chain. Some are already tagging products for their customers. Others are examining how they can benefit internally by improving the utilization of containers and chassis with RFID tracking.
