Spain : INDITEX announces RFID implementation scheme

July 18, 2014

Pablo Isla, the chairman and CEO of Inditex, has announced a new project at the Spanish holding company's annual general meeting on Tuesday.

The project, called the radio frequency identification technology (RFID) implementation scheme, is designed to equip Inditex's brand stores with radio-frequency garment identification technology.

The new system includes a microprocessor based chip tagging plan which embeds the chips into the plastic alarms that are attached to the company's brands garments.

This state-of-the-art technology would enable Inditex to individually track and follow garments, from the time the items depart from the logistics platforms until they are sold to shoppers in store and help boost its already fast supply chain.

The RFID system codes each garment in the company's logistics centers, meaning that when garment shipments arrive in its twice a week, the system can 'pinpoint' which sizes and models should be restocked.

Isla said : ' The implementation of this next-generation technology is one of the most significant changes in how the group s stores operate'.
