Swiss Food Co-op Deploys RFID to Automate Shipment Tracking

Migros Ostschweiz (East Switzerland), one of the 10 regional cooperatives belonging to Swiss supermarket chain Migros, is employing radio frequency identification technology to automate the confirmation of which goods are loaded onto vehicles destined for particular stores, and when this occurs. By using the solution, known as Load Unit Identification and Positioning, or LUIDO (LU-Paletten Identifikation und Ortung), the company can ensure that forklift drivers need not visually verify that they have the correct load, move boxes to do so, or scan bar codes. Instead, they can merely proceed with going about their job of moving goods from the staging area onto trucks, while receiving an alert in the event of a mistake.
