ScrnShot

Pressures to comply with government and private sector regulations have driven RFID (radio frequency identification) adoption among manufacturers. While state- and retailer-generated regulations lack the ability to fully streamline supply chains, many industries are looking to the federal government to set national standards with the ultimate goal of a safe, secure, and efficient global supply chain. As ultimate actions remain inconclusive, manufacturers have turned their attention to deriving business value from RFID implementations integrated with serialization solutions that provide a deeper, more granular, layer of visibility and tracking within the supply chain. Here are two examples of how companies are leveraging RFID and track-and-trace to drive efficiency and strengthen business.
