Most current supply chain RFID operations involve tracking pallets, containers and cases. Much of this activity is driven by compliance with customer initiatives (e.g. retailer, DoD, aerospace),which has made it difficult for manufacturers and their distribution wings to get a positive inancial return on their RFID investments. RFID has been proven time and again to provide strong ROI when it is combined with improved business processes that reduce labor and prevent errors. A combination of mobile and fixed-position RFID readers supports these operations and helps deliver these benefits.
