IC-TAG Solutions, Inc. Offers Solutions to New DLA RFID Requirement for Suppliers

On October 1st, 2011, the DLA issued a mandate stating that all DLA suppliers must include RFID tags on all items that are shipped to its 25 supply depots. This new mandate will greatly decrease the occurrence of shipment errors which will prevent loss of inventory and save nearly 100 million dollars a year. Any suppliers that are not compliant with the new mandate will receive negative performance ratings from the DLA which will greatly reduce their chance of winning future bids on government contracts.

IC-TAG Solutions, Inc. offers various RFID tags and labeling solutions to help DLA suppliers comply with the new mandate. To view IC-TAG's popular categories, please visit www.ictagsolutions.com/ProductCatalog.html . Furthermore, IC-TAG Solutions, Inc. recently launched its new OnDemand Bureau Webpage, ictagsolutions.com/OnDemand , which offers suppliers the opportunity to easily provide the necessary RFID encoding information for orders being shipped to the DLA. With the information provided, IC-TAG is able to create and encode the tags properly for DLA compliance. Each OnDemand Bureau order will include a certification with proof of proper encoding and verification of the RFID tags. The experts at IC-TAG provide helpful RFID insight and create custom orders when necessary.

The DLA is also pushing to employ item-level tagging on all apparel goods such as uniforms and boots. This will ensure that trainees will get the right quantity of items, as well as the right size. This item-level RFID tagging was successful in reducing the inventory error rate from 5 percent to .2 percent at Lackland Airforce Base. Before the RFID implementation occurred, one out of every 20 boxes contained the wrong items.

As a GSA contractor, IC-TAG Solutions, Inc. understands the importance of 100 percent accuracy when shipping to the government. RFID tags are an excellent way to increase shipping accuracy and optimize inventory management. This is why IC-TAG offers not only the OnDemand Bureau but also many other RFID solutions such as RFID apparel tags, RFID labels (direct thermal, thermal transfer, paper or poly film).
