The Importance of Selecting the Right RFID Partners and Printers for Your Retail E-Commerce Projects
Whether you are a retailer, supplier, or intermediary such as a logistics partner, the importance of selecting the right RFID partners, printers and equipment cannot be overstated. RFID is complex. In a recent RFID presentation from the world’s leading retailer, their overriding message was, “RFID is difficult but worth it.” This means that selecting the right partners and equipment is often the critical difference between success and failure.

The concept of environmental sustainability has become increasingly important in recent years. Regulations further strengthen the circular economy to support sustainability, aiming to achieve a carbon-neutral, environmentally sustainable, toxic-free, and fully circular economy by 2050.1 Businesses are now under pressure to implement sustainable practices in their operations to prompt the reduction of CO2 emissions. Linerless labels offer an environmentally sustainable method to support this goal.
Items with RFID labels are now arriving at your brick-and-mortar stores. Hopefully, you view this as great news. What do you need to keep in mind to take advantage of these newly tagged items?
Successful RAIN RFID implementations in the retail industry depend on global standards to ensure that products are trackable across the value chain from the manufacturer through logistics partners and ultimately to the retailer. Regardless of the tags and equipment in use, who encoded the tags, or who is reading the tags, actors and trading partners in the retail value chain rely on standards to ensure interoperability.
