Improving apparel manufacturers' inbound and outbound operations at all echelons

Item-level tagging (ILT) in apparel industry is being driven actively by major retailers in the US and is now the trend that every apparel manufacturer cannot afford to ignore.  It offers apparel manufacturers the opportunities to improve inbound and outbound operations at all echelons as well as a more efficient on-shelf-availability of product to retailers.  GS1 Hong Kong has partnered with five major item-level RFID tagging solution vendors and is offering a total solution to apparel manufacturers in this new industry initiative - Item-level Tagging Program in 2011.
