8 November 2005 -- RFID Enabled Warehousing and Distribution Think Tank

RFID has countless applications in the warehousing and distribution industry. Benefits include using RFID to track and trace goods, to maximise warehouse capacity and to monitor the condition of goods. If these are just a few of the advantages of using RFID in the warehouse or distribution centre then why has RFID not been adopted in the mainstream? What incentive do firms need to make the jump from a manual or barcode system to an RFID system? What has already been done with RFID in warehousing and distribution? What were the successes? What were the failures? What are the future implications if RFID becomes a compliance issue? What does future development in RFID technology hold in store for the warehousing and distribution industry? How do RFID systems compare with other contact less systems?

This Think Tank will bring together the key end users in the warehousing and distribution industry to discuss the issues that arise with using RFID technology in the warehouse and distribution environment.

The event will take place at the RFID Networking Forum on November 8th at The Sheraton Skyline Hotel in Heathrow. The RFID Networking Forum, Europes most successful RFID event, is designed to help you explore the opportunities and address the challenges faced when considering the adoption of RFID technology. There will be many sessions on the day that will be of interest to members of the warehousing and distribution industry including a presentation by Bernard Auton (Head of RFID Technology Group, Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport) on implementing an RFID pilot and a case study by Jim Cooney (Managing Director, MilkLink) on supply chain solutions.

Now being staged for the fifth time, over one thousand participants have discovered the benefits of this unique RFID event, learning from peer interaction and sharing best practice with their counterparts.
