The Basic House uses UPM Raflatac DogBone RFID tags

Korean apparel company The Basic House has implemented an RFID solution using UPM Raflatac DogBone RFID tags to gain visibility into its supply chain management and to overcome a number of problems typical of the apparel industry. Convinced of the advantages of RFID, the company is strongly committed to the technology: since implementing RFID in its operations almost a year ago, The Basic House has developed equipment in-house to directly resolve their logistic challenges.

In the first phase, The Basic House developed equipment capable of encoding high volumes of RFID tags suitable for their needs. Automatic inspection and removal of tags with possible encoding faults has enabled The Basic House to substantially speed up its processes and introduced a new level of accuracy.

As individually tagged garments are often transported in boxes containing multiple items, The Basic House developed a shielded gate to ensure accurate readings at the warehousing and delivery stages. Since identification is not dependent on the tags' orientation inside the boxes, the solution is fast and reliable. Furthermore, the shielded gate is not confused by tags in other boxes nearby, a typical problem in warehouse surroundings.

By combining the performance and reliability of UPM Raflatac DogBone RFID tags with tailor-made solutions and equipment, The Basic House has achieved easy access to real-time, reliable product data. The results include reduced labour costs in warehousing, distribution and at the point-of-sale, opportunities for fast inventory, major improvements in forecasting and planning, reduced out-of-stock situations and improved customer service. Crucial to the apparel industry, the Basic House now also has the ability to react quickly to customers' needs and forthcoming trends.

“The Basic House is an excellent example of how an innovatively designed RFID solution in the apparel industry can bring near 100% reliability in a challenging logistics environment,” says Edward Lu, Sales and Marketing Director, Asia, RFID, UPM Raflatac.
