Checkpoint Systems, a provider of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, has been selected by Inditex Group to implement Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology into its distribution centers.
With RFID label encoding, Inditex products will be provided with a unique code allowing the apparel retailer to manage its inventory automatically.
The deployment is part of Inditex’s RFID implementation project that was recently unveiled to facilitate the automatic sending of garments from the distribution centers to the stores, avoiding any possible packing mistakes in quantity, model, size or color.
Checkpoint Systems provides item-level encoding solution of RFID labels at Inditex distribution centers for garments in boxes, pallets and hanging items at a speed in line with Inditex’s logistics needs, the company said.
With Checkpoint’s solution Inditex can automate the sending of garments from the distribution centers to the stores, avoiding any possible packing mistakes in quantity, model, size or color.
The RFID solution automatically checks the accuracy of the content of the boxes regardless of the packing format — with a high level of precision and at a high speed — in line with Inditex demands before they are sent to the stores.
“We are proud to support Inditex’s omni-channel retail strategy with RFID solutions which enable maximum speed and optimal precision for full control and visibility of the millions of garments that the Group ships every day to its stores around the world,” said Per Levin, president and chief sales officer for Merchandise Availability Solutions, Checkpoint Systems.
