Inditex, one of the leading global fashion retailers, has installed the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology at its distribution centers, by Checkpoint Systems, a global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry.

Checkpoint Systems provides the massive, 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 high-speed bulk encoding solution with Electronic Product Code (EPC), which combines hardware and software, ensures the highest levels of accuracy and encoding speed without needing to manually open boxes and handle individual garments.

With RFID label encoding, Inditex products have a unique code that allows the retailer to manage its inventory automatically.

Checkpoint System’s RFID solution also enables Inditex to 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 before they are sent to the stores.

The president and chief sales officer for merchandise availability solutions at Checkpoint Systems, Per Levin said, “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 Inditex ships every day to its stores around the world.”

The RFID solution is already implemented in more than 700 Zara stores, a brand owned by Inditex, in 22 countries.

Checkpoint Systems, headquartered in Spain, is one of the global leaders in shrink management, merchandise visibility, and apparel labeling solutions. (GK)
