How DSC helped Continental Mills adopt new RFID technology
Leading the way with information and execution
When you're doing something for the first time, it's usually a good idea to learn as much as you can. That way, you'll be better prepared for the next time
That's exactly what Continental Mills thought when they were asked by Albertsons to participate in a RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) pilot program along with other leading grocery suppliers in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metropolitan area. And they knew their logistics partner, DSC Logistics, could help them.
We apply RFID tags to select SKUs destined for one of the three Albertsons distribution centers participating in the pilot program. After being tagged, the pallets pass through a RFID portal for scanning, where as much as 100 percent reads on the pallets have been achieved. This starts the RFID tracking process.
The scanning of the RFID tagged cases allows both Albertsons and Continental Mills to have complete visibility for the product throughout the supply chain.
