According to a May 13 report posted on The Nation, a Bangkok-based Web site, Joe White, vice president of engineering for Symbol, said Symbol saw opportunities for RFID systems in many industries in the region, including aviation, transport, logistics, container handling, warehousing and distribution, plus retailing. He was in Bangkok for the company's regional meeting.
Symbol already has two customers in Thailand, TNT Logistics and Colestica, an electronics manufacturer according to the article by Kwanchai Rungfapaisarn.
