JVC Disc America Co., a manufacturer and distributor of compact discs, CD-ROMs and DVDs, has completed a successful implementation of an radio frequency identification (RFID) solution. JVC Disc America implemented the HighJump Compliance Advantage solution at its Kennesaw, Ga., fulfillment center to provide its customers with the ability to meet retail RFID requirements.
The Kennesaw facility ships more than 4 million units each month directly to stores or distribution centers, with volume peaking at 17 million units per month during October and November. An increasing number of these orders require case or pallet-level RFID tagging to meet requirements of major retail chains.
JVC Disc America uses the HighJump solution to incorporate RFID tagging into standard distribution operations, avoiding the need for a stand-alone work area and manual separation of shipments requiring RFID. All order processing stations are now capable of completing orders with either bar codes or RFID, giving JVC Disc America 100% capacity to support both technologies. This will accommodate future increases in the number of RFID tagged-orders without any disruption to operational flow.
JVC Disc America is evaluating other internal applications for RFID. These include RFID tagging of all inbound and outbound pallets, as well as automatic dock door-based readings to simplify both shipping and inventory management during peak periods.
