Tendam refreshes sustainable fulfilment
Spanish retail giant Tendam has added a new platform as part of its digitisation strategy as it looks to become more sustainable
RFID will be a key enabler towards a fully transparent supply chain, allowing for full item traceability from source to consumer. Knowing the exact location and status of an item allows for lean operations, which results in lower safety thresholds, enabling Tendam to sell more with less stock and using more efficient fulfilment methods such as Ship-from-Store or Click & Collect (BOPIS).
“By using RFID technology, we are taking a major step in our digitisation strategy. Knowing exactly which items are in stock and where these are located in real-time enables us to always choose the most efficient fulfilment method,” said Manel Jimenez, COO at Tendam.
After implementing RFID in all 1,222 stores, the project will be expanded to the rest of the supply chain.
The deployment of RFID readers in distribution centres and warehouses allows for the automation and optimisation of data capturing, verification steps, and seamless integration with the merchandise flow.
