With the development of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), many companies and research institutions are enthusiastically engaged in pursuing its applications. In order to be competitive in today's business environment, companies must lower the cost of logistics and improve efficiency. Distribution Centres play an important role within the supply chain. Because it helps suppliers and customers to connect, RFID technology will be one of the prevailing technologies in the near future. A review of RFID technology literature has identified several barriers relating to the adoption of RFID. This research identifies the most significant issues that will impact on the future of RFID technology. The implementation of RFID is still at the emerging stage. RFID has immense potential benefits for Distribution Centres, but there are many practical aspects that have yet to be solved. This research assesses impacts and obstacles for the introduction of RFID. These findings should identify the barriers encountered when implementing RFID in the supply chain process which will be valuable information for those interested in RFID.
