FKI Logistex Releases Spanish Language Version of New RFID White Paper

June 222005
(St. Louis, MO: June 21, 2005) FKI Logistex® (www.fkilogistex.com), a global leader in integrated material handling solutions, announces the availability of a new RFID white paper translated into Spanish for customers and prospects in Latin America. "RFID for the Real World" discusses the challenges and opportunities for RFID implementation in the warehouse and distribution center environment, including distribution facilities serving manufacturing operations.

As detailed in the white paper, widespread adoption of RFID material handling technology faces several hurdles in the near future. These challenges include cost, uncertain market standards, and technological limitations that have yet to be overcome. "RFID for the Real World" suggests that hybrid bar code-RFID systems will be the norm for years to come, and will possibly rest as the dominant mode of implementation in the long term. In this scenario, bar codes and other printed data remain as backup in case of the failure of RFID controls.

"FKI Logistex believes that material handling and supply chain managers need to take a pragmatic stance when evaluating RFID technology," says Steve Ackerman, president, FKI Logistex North America. "While RFID has long-term potential to revolutionize material handling and supply chain dynamics, the technology looks to us to be in its nascent stage. We're advocating a cautious, case-by-case approach to implementing RFID for our North American customers that waits until a clear return can be seen."
