Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, announced in June 2003 that its top 100 suppliers would be required by January 2005 to put Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tags on cases and palettes of consumer goods shipped to Wal-Mart distribution centers and stores.

RFID sensor technology has been given its first broad, real-world test, prompting Wal-Mart suppliers and competitors to learn about this wireless technology, which enables companies to automatically identify and track items in the supply chain.
