Toll Global Logistics Expects RFID to Provide Significant Savings
Source: By Claire Swedberg

The company is using EPC tags and S3Edge software to automate the tracking of products at its Singapore facility.

Toll Global Logistics, one of Asia's largest logistics providers, is using a radio frequency identification at its Singapore facility to track goods received, stored and shipped from there, with the goal of providing an accurate view into the location of their products via Internet-based S3Edge software . Although the system has only been in place for three months, based on studies done before the installation, the system has the potential to save significant manpower, says James Chan Chok Kiong, Toll Global Logistics' general manager of innovation, technology and operations development. 


The company ships and stores its customers products in a number of countries, including Thailand, Korea, China and Australia. 
The key goals for the company were to reduce labor hours by phasing out manual methods of tracking shipments, gaining visibility; and sharing that visibility with its customers.

RFID - Something Retailers are Looking at...
Source: Jim B. Cantrell

Retail spending is still not what it could be...still.  Yes, consumers are still spending, but taking more time to make decisions and shopping more to find better deals.  This means Retailers have to work harder to a.) Attract/keep customers and b.) Maintain margin.  There are many ways this could be achieved: including RFID (Radio Frequency Identification).  For many in the industry, maintaining margin means finding efficiencies everywhere and anywhere.  Attracting new and existing customers is another issue - and very much related depending on the process efficiencies Retailers look to for relief, and S3Edge is a leading innovator who can help Retailers achieve these process efficiencies with RFID technology.
