RFID project for apparel warehouse optimization in China

Jan '12
Leo InnoTech (LIT) and UPM RFID have carried out one of the largest item-level RFID implementations for a Chinese apparel company, with six million apparel items tagged annually. The solution focuses mainly on warehouse logistics optimization, benefiting the apparel company with significantly lower labor costs and fast delivery. Leo Paper Group (LPG), LIT's parent company, supplies the printing and lamination of RFID hang tags with embedded UPM DogBone and UPM ShortDipole UHF inlays from UPM RFID.

Leo InnoTech (LIT) has set up a patented solution with gate-in and gate-out tunnels: apparel is passing through accurately and reliably at an average 350 items within 20 seconds. For hanging garments, LIT has setup a 70-meter long automatic conveyor system, where garments are classified and controlled to 28 gates using RFID technology at a speed of 60-90 hanging garments every minute.

Using RFID technology in warehouse management, the apparel manufacturer will achieve substantial savings in labor costs. Meanwhile, when apparel items are passing through outbound logistics accurately and without delay, retail customers receive fast and correct deliveries to ensure better customer service. When mis-shipments and rush deliveries can be avoided, transportation resources are used more effectively and with lower impact on the environment.

LIT specializes in RFID and interactive technologies, providing total solutions for warehouse re-engineering using RFID technologies. The company provides consultation, RFID equipment sourcing and middleware, warehouse management software, and RFID hang tag and total system integration.

“We were very pleased to cooperate with UPM RFID in this apparel project. Their high-performance UHF RFID tags embedded into hang tags provide a stable and reliable implementation, which is vitally important in a large-scale, item-level RFID solution,” comments Kit Lee, VP & GM, Leo InnoTech.

“It's been a great pleasure to work with Leo InnoTech on this apparel project. I anticipate more and more local apparel brands implementing RFID in China in 2012. This project shows that apparel companies can achieve a positive ROI with the correct selection of UPM RFID inlays supported by an intelligent software and hardware solution. This is a really good start to a successful business partnership between Leo InnoTech and UPM RFID,” says Edward Lu, Sales and Marketing Director, APAC, UPM RFID.

Leo InnoTech (LIT) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Leo, specializing in RFID and interactive technologies. Operating from offices in Hong Kong, Southern China (Guang Zhou), Eastern China (Wu Xi) and Taiwan, LIT optimizes and streamlines the supply chain in full, ensuring the benefits of state-of-the-art tracking technology.
