RFID in retail is exploding, and tonight the latest tends in retail RFID will be discussed at the MIT Enterprise Forum meeting at MIT. The event, “Disruptive Innovation: Improving the Retail Flow of Goods,” will examine the impact of long-range RFID and sensors on the Internet of Things for retail and other industries. Speakers include [...]
The recent large-scale recalls of peanut butter and more than 100 related food items re-emphasizes the need for an RFID-based track and trace system for the food industry. Most RFID experts fully anticipate that food safety and quality represents the next major breakthrough market for RFID. Research firm IDTechEx says that the RFID market for [...]
This case study from Intelleflex discusses the benefits of implementing pallet-level temperature monitoring and reviews a recent project with a major North American berry producer. It describes the importance and value of pallet level temperature monitoring from harvest to retailer including and the advantages of using FEFO+ to optimize routing based on shelf life.
Proper temperature monitoring and management throughout the cold chain is no longer a luxury but a necessity. This white paper from Intelleflex explains how pallet-level temperature monitoring of perishable produce can improve operations, reduce waste and increase profitability throughout the cold chain.
RFID 24-7 recently reported that RFID is making big strides in Asia when it comes to product authentication for liquor and tobacco. In fact, NXP forecasts that 150 million bottles of wine and alcohol will be tagged in Asia this year alone. Now comes an entirely new market – bird nests. Considered to be “the [...]
Chinese consumers are demanding new ways to authenticate products as concerns about counterfeit products rise in that country.

The food business is one industry that provides huge potential for the demonstration of return on investment for RFID technologies by providing authentication of the origin of food or by reducing waste and optimizing logistics costs, or by increasing quality of goods to the consumer.
Big insurers are banking on the benefits of RFID technology to open new markets in the insurance industry. Better yet, efficiency gains and reduced supply chain risks from deploying RFID could lead to cheaper insurance premiums for those that deploy the technology, bettering ROI’s that are already soaring.
