Cases of fresh produce will soon be easier to track through the supply chain with the help of the new Canadian RFID Centre. The centre, which is to be based in Markham, Ontario, will allow Canadian companies the opportunity to experience RFID-enabled business processes in the perishables, consumer packaged goods and retail industries in their own backyard. With an initial investment of approximately $1.7 million, the centre will enable the Canadian industry to better understand, experience, experiment with and test the latest RFID technologies and demonstrate the potential business case for tracking products. Additionally, this centre will be the first in North America to demonstrate the use of Generation 2 technology, which increases its applicability and stability to operate in many different industries and environments. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a wireless system that helps business track products, parts, expensive items and temperature-and time-sensitive goods using a radio frequency transmission.
