Norwegian food retailer controls material flow with RFID-tagged pallets

Coop Norge has been using RFID-technology to track pallets in their own intra logistics processes for about a year. RFID-technology is a part of the system to control the material flow from the receipt of goods until they leave the new logistics center near Oslo.

One hundred percent control of incoming and outgoing goods in the logistics center and zero mistakes at the dispatch

On Friday the items arrive in the logistics center. Tuesday, blouse or jeans are with the B2B-customer in the mail order company. To be able to react to the market quickly was the reason for Drykorn, the internationally up-and-coming fashion label for young dynamic fashion, to use RFID together with the Geis Group in their logistics center. With the implementation of RFID-technology at the time of the new fall/winter collection 2013, the companies benefit from a significant increase in efficiency in the internal logistics due to accelerated processes for incoming and outgoing goods, flawless shipping, as well as up-to-date data.

Traceability from production to the store

In the year 2012, the strategic decision was made at Migros to tag all containers with RFID-labels until 2016. The Genossenschaft Migros Ostschweiz is using RFID-container labelling as a basis to optimize its supply chain visibility. A first goal is to thoroughly track the processes of meat supply from the production until the supermarket.

Pleased rental car customers thanks to RFID

The car rental company Sixt is one of the biggest German companies by turnover in the sector and active world-wide, with more than 2000 rental stations. The car rental market is dynamic; the competitors are on the spot – at some German major airports, customers have the opportunity to choose from ten different car hire companies. The customers’ satisfaction regarding the service is therefore of high importance in the competition. In order to considerably improve the processes of the handing over and the taking back of vehicles, starting in February 2014, Sixt has rolled out an innovative UHF-RFID-application in ten countries. In the interview with „RFID im Blick“, Alexander Boone of Sixt tells that already after a short period of time measurable improvements could be noticed.

Thorsten Wischnewski, Head of RFID, Rako Security Label, in an interview with Dunja Kandel, „RFID im Blick“

What innovative new developments and labeling options does Rako pursue in retail with regard to transponder technology?

What I think is: RFID is just the beginning. Sensors could be the next step. In a current research project we are intensively dealing with the topic of wearable electronics. Tags with RFID interface that are permanently integrated into garments might enable new functions in the future. An additional benefit, we already offer, is tamper evidence for anti theft labels. When the tags are removed from the article, an alarm is triggered via a special EPC event.

Pool System in Retail

Complete Transparency in Container Management

About 10 million reusable containers are in circulation between more than 600 locations and suppliers of the biggest Switzerland retail company Migros every day – a major challenge when it comes to organizing logistics processes. In order to optimize the flow of goods and information sustainably and efficiently, the retail company has been counting on RFID based container detection since 2012 already. Since the integration, Migros was able to improve the transparency in the supply chain significantly, which is why another eight million labels were ordered from Inotec in February 2014. In dialogue with “RFID im Blick“, Christoph Reill, International Sales Director, reports, which added values companies, such as Migros, can generate with an RFID-based container management.

NFC payment

Expansion of Girogo introduction

In July 2013, the Heide Park Resort in Soltau started to allow all visitors to pay contactlessly using the Girocard's Girogo function. Thus the Lower Saxony amusement park is part of the further pilot phase expansion in order to introduce Girogo which is supposed to be expanded by a new project of the Deutsche Kreditwirtschaft to further develop contactless payment starting from the end of 2014 onwards.
