M&S extends RFID across departments

Marks and Spencer is extending its nine year contract with RFID supplier Avery Dennison to use RFID across all its retail departments including home ware and clothing by Spring 2014.

Avery Dennison has supplied almost one billion RFID tags to M&S with no data loss or duplication.

M&S plans to expand the use of RFID scanning throughout the supply chain to increase accuracy and speed of distribution.

Kim Phillips, head of packaging, Marks & Spencer, said: “Having accurate stock information is a driver for our whole business, especially when it comes to multi-channel. The RFID partnership with Avery Dennison is allowing us to replenish stock from the distribution centre more accurately, making more garment sizes available to more customers and continuing to prove its value over and over again.”
