More up-to-date than ever: Innovations for retail, logistics and supply chain!
The first issue 2020 of RFID & Wireless IoT Global was published on February 20th - just before the COVID-19 case numbers in Europe spiked.
With the spread of the pandemic, the topic of the issue "Retail, Logistics and Supply Chain" is more relevant today than ever before. The worldwide shutdowns are an extreme test of strength for retail and for the global logistics chains that are essential to the retail industry.
But what role do RFID and Wireless IoT play in this complex global crisis? Quite simply, contactless, radio-based solutions help automate processes and reduce the need for manual intervention. Contactless payment is very practical in retail. Still a niche solution in many places, payment by contactless credit and debit cards or NFC-enabled smart watches and phones has become a key element in curbing the spread of viruses in retail overnight, according to a WHO recommendation.
The first issue 2020 of RFID & Wireless IoT Global is now also publicly available as an e-paper.
International retail companies and brand owners report exclusively on the use of RFID, NFC & Co. in the supply chain, store and customer interaction. These companies have implemented processes, some of which combine online and offline worlds, and now, in times of extensive closures and distance regulations that will accompany us for months to come, they have an additional benefit: staying in business.
