RedPrairie Corporation, a global leader in supply chain technology solutions that enable business process transformation, announced that CHEP has implemented RedPrairie RFID-enabled DLx Warehouse in its Orlando, FL Innovation Center. CHEP, the global leader in pallet and container pooling services, is utilizing its Innovation Center to demonstrate usage and benefits of RFID for customers and prospects as well as representatives of the supply chains where CHEP participates.
CHEP recently expanded the RFID capabilities of the Innovation Center to showcase end-to-end tracking of pallets, cases and items from receiving and put-away, to inventory management and shipping. RedPrairie provides the warehousing management solution and visibility to all supply chain participants involved in the movement of goods including the manufacturer, transporter, distribution center and retailer for this demonstration.
The main purpose of this real time simulation at the Innovation Center is to showcase how RFID provides total visibility to the supply chain. We have a constant flow of customers, prospects and partners coming through to learn how they can improve their logistics performance using RFID. The RedPrairie solution ties the demonstration together, enabling end-to-end visibility leading to benefits in the area of product tracking, asset tracking, on-shelf availability and automatic checkout, said Puneet Sawhney, RFID Program Manager, for CHEP.
The retail RFID initiative has mandated many of our joint customers to apply RFID tags at the case and pallet level on shipments destined for stores and other distribution centers. At the Innovation Center, CHEP and RedPrairie are demonstrating a best-in-breed deployment of RFID, from satisfying retailer mandates to capturing RFID data for their own internal use and ROI, said David Vollmer, Regional Account Executive, RFID, for RedPrairie.
The CHEP Innovation Center is available to customers who want to learn more about RFID and supply chain visibility.
