CPG Manufacturers To Get Wal-Mart And Target RFID Data

Wal-Mart and Target recently announced that they intend to share the EPC data derived from their RFID systems with thirteen of their CPG suppliers.

"The joint announcement is a positive signal to the retail and consumer goods markets that leaders in both industries are focused on more cooperative, results-oriented solutions," says Erik Michielsen, director of RFID of Oyster Bay, NY-based ABI Research. "As analytical tools develop and as CPGs cooperate more with one another, the CPG-retailer relationship will evolve from a retail 'push' market to a more balanced retail/CPG 'push-pull' market," Michielsen notes.
