Championing the way forward for supply chain accuracy is RFID technology, which gives each item a unique digital identity that can be read quickly and easily. In a traditional supply chain, boxes and bundles can be tracked, but individual items can often get lost in the process. Integrating RFID increases visibility and traceability of assets, boxes and pallets using a unique ID throughout the entire supply chain. Specific data such as manufacturing location, shipment date and loT number associated with the individual product supports simpler and more effective recall and product tracking processes, as well as contributing to reducing waste.
