Adidas Distributors are Using RFID Labels for Managing Inventory

adidas is using rfid for managing their commodity

In recent years, some key retailers have just begun to announce their relevant plans, that to use RFID label for most or all of their inventory to improve efficiency and rate of return. They expected to rely on RFID to improve the accuracy of inventory, reduce the number of non manufactured products, improve damage prevention measures and fraud response measures, and finally complete self-service checkout.

When one of Agron’s key customers has already adopted this new method, the manufacturing enterprise must also attach RFID label to all products for this customer, which can be labeled with about 30,000 items per week.



In corporated with MSA systems, Agron deployed infrastructure for RFID labeling and his warehouse automation steps. The manufacturer installed MSA’s qstock inventory software to manipulate inventory and manage the serial numbers associated with each RFID tagged item.

MSA recommended Zebra R110Xi4 RFID copier / encoder for xeron to consider the company’s requirements for excellent performance and high reliability. “Zebra’s technical track record of sales has given people confidence in its features and durability in terms of many other performance conditions,” said Majid jalalian, chief executive officer of MSA systems.

R110Xi4 has a smaller space interval of RFID inserts than other copiers, so the cost of each identification is lower, the frequency of material roller replacement is less, and the freight volume is higher. In addition to copying the readable words and numbers on the surface of the logo, the copier also encodes the RFID chip inserts inside the logo, showing an integrated solution for embedded processing errors.

Msaseystems shows the installation, equipping, marking, factory setting and training service of R110Xi4 copier / encoder. Many embedded functions also save MSA and Agron’s original configuration time and the time to carry out all changes. In fact, only one noon is needed for the copier to be installed and running.

In order to ensure that all the marks are properly numbered, the copier / encoder technology will check whether the missing signs are reasonable, and then encodes the marks and verify accordingly, to make Agron and customers feel at ease about the scannability of the marks. In addition, the adaptive encoding technicality of Zebra technology which has been applied for patent will complete the inspection and calibration of intelligent inserts, to save the time for placing new marks.



Relying on Zebra’s technical copier / encoder, Agron is able to consider customers’ new RFID order requirements without changing its supply chain management steps or inconvenient maintenance regulations. The new copier / encoder just replaces the previous barcode printer and does not improve the time of all label work.

“According to the feedback from customers, it’s very satisfactory to adopt excellent technical progress in their current steps,” said Marc Hernandez, head of Agron services and distributors.

Every week, Agron receives orders from customers, usually need to be delivered to more than 1,000 stores. The picker centralizes the goods and then sends them for copying / numbering department for RFID tagging. The company can copy all 30,000 labels in five to six hours (or in one morning), helping Agron to easily consider customers’ requirements on cash convertion cyclying time. In addition, Agron also found that zebra’s technical copier / encoder did not shut down and repair the device on time, which also reduced the cost.
