German Bag Maker Adopts RFID Solution for Anti-counterfeiting

German-bag-maker-Bagjack-anti-counterfeiting-RFID-blogGerman messenger-bag manufacturer Bagjack is deploying a new RFID-based anti-counterfeiting solution which is intended to help confirm the authenticity of goods, as well as identify instances in which the product may have undergone an unexpected channel on its way to consumers.

Bagjack is attaching an RFID tag to various parts of its messenger bags (such as the inside flap or underneath one of the mesh straps), depending on the bag’s design.

This past summer, Bagjack piloted the technology by tagging its high-end products with RFID tags, and by then reading those tags as they left the manufacturing site. But now, the company intends to instruct some of its dealers in Japan to begin reading the tags, to ensure that the bags stay on the expected supply chain route.
