RFIDs – Line56

September 20th, 2002 · No Comments

Line56.com: RFID Changes Everything from Line56:

For businesses, Radio Ffrequency Identification (RFID) is simply about using radio waves to automatically identify physical items in varying proximity to machine “readers” which can uniquely identify them at the ship, truck, container, pallet or item level.

As it applies to the supply chain, RFID and electronic product codes (EPCs) are not just a replacement for the under-appreciated barcodes which revolutionized the manufacturing, retail and shipping businesses 29 years ago. They are a giant step forward in supply-chain visibility which one day should track goods from raw material to landfill, and simultaneously address issues like counterfeiting, theft, and perishability.
