Success for Rewe trial of RFID

COLOGNE: Rewe Group is extending its use of RFID technology, having trialled it successfully at its distribution centre in Norderstedt, and will roll it out to other logistics facilities. Suppliers have been asked to use RFID tagging on all deliveries to Rewe's warehouses. "The suppliers benefit from our RFID roll-out," said general manager of IT & Logistics, Erich König. "A company cross-flow of information allows a reduction in process costs and an improvement in process quality."
