Dutch Shoe Maker to Use RFID Labels During Production
Dutch shoe manufacturer Wolky has decided to attach RFID labels during the production of its products. Each label is embedded with a passive UHF EPC Gen 2 inlay. The labels can be scanned using !D Hand RFID reader.
In fact, Wolky has already tagged its shoeboxes as shipments were received at the stores. One of Wolky’s resellers that has already integrated RFID successfully at its stores requested that Wolky attach RFID labels at the production stage in order to speed up inventory processes.
Since Wolky believes other retailers will also wish to use the RFID technology, Wolky has agreed to the phased introduction of a standard Wolky RFID label on its shoeboxes at its footwear factories.
Not only will each reseller benefit from the RFID labels, but Wolky will be able to use the RFID labels as a means of achieving efficiency benefits within its logistics chain, as well as increase supply chain reliability and improve customer satisfaction.
