Logistics & Distribution: Supply Chain Digital Reveals the Significant Part That Barcoding and RFID Play in the Supply Chain
Supply Chain Digital reveals how RFID and barcoding developments could work to potentially revolutionize the Supply Chain market.
(I-Newswire) July 19, 2010 - Norwich, UK – Work to develop RFID and barcoding technologies has continued at a great pace but is there potential for further progress? In the July issue of Supply Chain Digital, Liz Wells sets the record straight about whether RFID is set to replace barcodes and how technological advancements have helped to evolve both solutions.
At the moment, there is little in the way of competition facing the two technologies but there remains plenty of scope for development in the future, particularly with the increased use of barcodes.
“The growing awareness of 2D [barcodes], with its ability to store more information, will help drive overall use of barcode systems. Both 1D and 2D barcodes will continue to provide an efficient and error-reducing way to help business,” said Grant Wickes, Vice-President of Marketing at Wasp Barcode Technologies.
As RFID looks set to become recognized as a more marginal, specialized solution with innovative functionalities, could it be that both technologies will find a niche market within the supply chain?
“Of course, the general lowering of costs also opens up the technologies to use in places where they weren’t previously financially viable,” explained Ian W. Bowden, President of Aurora Barcode Technologies.
