How RFID Can Fix New Manufacturing Challenges in the Post-Pandemic Supply Chain

RFID was already becoming a necessary manufacturing process before COVID-19. Now, as a result of the pandemic, companies are adding additional RFID installations in their manufacturing industries to improve productivity and because of the increasing ROI that RFID provides. Unlike traditional technologies, RFID decreases expenses by consolidating as much as 40 barcodes into one tag. Moreover, the read speed is ten times higher than traditional methods. The growth of RFID and the accuracy it delivers can be seen in any business. In fact, the RFID market is around $10.7 billion this year, and it is expected to grow to $17.4 billion by 2026. RFID technology can already raise inventory accuracy up to 99.9%. Here are some issues in the manufacturing industry caused by the pandemic that RFID can help with:

● Adapting to a changed economic landscape for you and your customers

● How to increase productivity ● Tracking pallets for just-in-time delivery ● Establishing real-time tracking for work in progress
