Shrinkage reduction in perishable food supply chain by means of an RFID-based FIFO management policy

Massimo Bertolini, Eleonora Bottani, Antonio Rizzi, Andrea Volpi, Pietro Renzi
2013 International Journal of RF Technologies  
The relatively short shelf life of fresh products forces to maintain a punctual control of the rotation of cases in the warehouse.  ...  Results show that the deployment of RFID technology has potential to help manage the FIFO policy of fresh products, thus generating interesting savings for the food supply chain.  ...  Respecting the FIFO policy for shelf replenishment is a relevant issue for fresh products, with limited shelf life, for which an incorrect FIFO policy could lead to products expiry, thus generating shrinkage  ...
