SIS Technologies, Distribution Center Logistics (DC Logistics) and Transport Industries, have established an RFID Deployment Center to help logistics companies meet mandates from Dallas-area customers especially Wal-Mart and the Department of Defense.
Capabilities of the 150,000 square foot facility include product and pallet tagging, cross-docking and consolidation services, making this the first full-function facility for RFID deployment, SIS officials claim.
"RFID is more than just a technology challenge, so we sought to enter this market from a broader perspective," said John Reed, COO of SIS Technologies. "We partnered with DC Logistics and one of Wal-Mart's largest grocery carriers, Transport Industries, because these companies have extensive industry knowledge and existing supply chain customers."
"Transport Industries has inter-distribution center optimization technology that utilize mobilecomm truck information," said spokesperson Mike Voelk of Transport Industries, a current supplier to DC Logistics. With over 1,600 QUALCOMM-equipped trucks dedicated to deliver to Wal-Mart's DCs, "This technology enables economical fulfillment between the center and Wal-Mart DCs."
