Lemmi Fashion, a Germany-based producer of children's apparel, has chosen Hong Kong's Checkpoint Systems (CKP) to supply the company and its strategic partners with RFID hangtags.
The RFID consumables will be used as part of a strategic initiative to help improve Lemmi's speed to market, inventory management, and order accuracy.
Checkpoint Systems is supplying Lemmi's manufacturing partners in Asia and Europe with Performa 13.56 MHz RFID-enabled hangtags. The hangtags, which include a visible version of the RFID tag and a traditional bar code, contain data such as article number, size, and color.
The tagging process begins when Lemmi's partners apply Performa RFID-enabled garment tags to items at their production sites. The goods are recorded when they are shipped from the manufacturer to Lemmi's distribution center (DC), and upon receipt at the DC. Movements within the DC are also recorded, and Lemmi reads the RFID tags a final time at the shipping area to confirm that all items required for the shipment have been packed.
"Because of our small lots and multiple product offerings, we needed to find an RFID tagging provider that could satisfy our unique performance and production requirements," said Gotz Pfeifferling, CIO of Lemmi Fashion.
