Swiss retailer Migros tags all 10M RTI’s for improved logistics

Migros, Switzerland’s largest retail company and supermarket chain, is in the process of retrofitting all 10 million of its returnable transport items (RTI) with GS1 EPC Global Returnable Asset Identifier (GRAI) UHF RFID labels.

By affixing RFID tags to 10 million returnable transport items, Swiss retailer Migros can better track deliveries, resulting in fewer out-of-stocks and false re-orders.

The company hopes to obtain much higher shipping accuracy by moving to an RFID-based solution, which is capable of handling the immense UHF RFID tag density at Migros’ distribution center, as well as the many dock doors that are often operational during peak hours.

The DC ships about 6,000 pallets a day, and the dock area is densely packed during peak hours. The RFID system had to handle around 1,000 tags per gate, up to 500 tags on each forklift load, and simultaneous loading on up to 20 doors at the same time.

The RFID solution has helped Migros to cut down on out-of-stocks and false reorders. With RFID in place, DC workers are able to quickly determine if a single pallet is fully loaded. Before RFID, the entire daily order amount was booked at once to the store, even if some of the items for later shipments were still at the staging area.

High volume stores receive up to eight deliveries a day, which led to false reorders. Due to short replenishment cycles, it is critical to know what is actually on each truck.
