ID
entification (
RFID
) is a method of storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called
RFID tag
s or transponders. An RFID tag is a small object that can be attached to or incorporated into a product,
animal, or person. RFID tags contain antennas to enable them to receive and respond to radio
-
frequency queries
from an RFID transceiver.

Wal
-
Mart and
the United States Department of Defense have published requirements that their vendors place
RFID tags on all shipments to improve supply chain management. Due to the size of these two organizations,
their RFID mandates impact thousands of companies worldw
ide. The deadlines have been extended several
times because many vendors face significant difficulties implementing RFID systems. Since January, 2005, Wal
-
Mart has required its top 100 suppliers to apply RFID labels to all shipments.
