The Dutch footwear brand Wolky announced it has decided to attach RFID labels during the production of its shoes. The Wolky barcode label on the box will be replaced by a Wolky barcode label with integrated Nedap RFID label, the companies said in a press release. The new labels will be introduced in a part of the range, but the aim is to apply RFID labels to all items from the Wolky winter collection 2014 onwards.
The RFID labels can be scanned in large numbers in a short period of time with the Nedap RFID scanner — in the logistics chain and in the store. As a result, any deviations between the items sent and the items received, as well as any differences between actual stock levels and administrative stock levels will be determined immediately and corrected. The companies said this will lead to lower inventory costs and reduced losses, in addition to increased turnover and improved margins.
