ASK RFID Smart Label Selected By DHL Fashion To Track Garments
February 25, 2005
ASK UHF C.label, a smart-paper label, has been selected by the System Integrator NBG ID and DHL Fashion to track garments at its Paris distribution center. DHL fashion is in charge of forwarding 70 million clothes a year on 15 platforms of fashion clothing suppliers and boutique operators. RFID is implemented in the whole supply chain down to the retail shop. It involves garment reception, inventory, order picking and delivery. In the fashion industry, collections change 4 times a year, which means logistics is a fast-moving and essential element in the supply chain. UHF-based management solution prevents mistakes in the number of pieces ordered for a reference and in the choice of right sizes, and increases speed of information storing and reading. It also optimizes invoicing for end-of-season returns from retailers to manufacturers. The first trial was launched last summer with a label of the Jacadi group.
