 Sidebar: UPS Sees RFID In Its Future but Isn't Ready to Deploy Devices - Computerworld
But CEO Mike Eskew last week said he views the adoption of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology by the company as being close to inevitable.
However, Eskew didn't put a time frame on when UPS will embrace RFID tags, which proponents say can store more detailed information about items that are being tracked than conventional bar codes can.
Eskew noted, though, that Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s plan to require its top 100 suppliers to start using passive RFID tags on shipping pallets by 2005 could take the technology to the stage where it "reaches a critical mass" of users.
