MAKING THE BUSINESS WORLD SMALLER

METRO Group is exploiting RFID technology for enhanced control over the global movement of goods.


Background


METRO Group is one of the world’s largest and most international retail companies with a 290,000-strong workforce operating in more than 150 countries.


Challenge


METRO Group sought greater efficiency and transparency in its supply chain to achieve better control over the global movement of goods.


Solution


Today METRO Group uses DogBone™ RFID tags to automate data collection concerning the receipt and storage of goods. The company also utilises RFID in inventory tracking.


Success


METRO Group has better control over the global movement of goods. Rather than having to check packages individually, RFID readers at goods receipt gates are able to tell within seconds whether all the products ordered have been delivered.
