Walmart® RFID Expansion to Thousands of Suppliers
POSDATA and Zebra Can Make Sure You’re Ready
Walmart’s rollout of RFID tags in apparel has produced significant improvements in customer satisfaction and on-hand inventory accuracy, leading Walmart to expand RFID requirements to additional product categories.
The product categories that fall under the RFID expansion are Home, Electronics, Toys, Sporting Goods, and Auto Batteries. Thousands of Walmart suppliers in these categories must add RFID labels to their products.
This change applies to all national, proprietary, supplier, and private brands and affects all Walmart USA Stores, including Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and .Com Merchandise.
