A Diffusion of Innovations Approach to Investigate the RFID Adoption in Taiwan Logistics Industry
Logistics tasks heavily depend on reliable shipment and accurate tracking information. For this reason, logistics today have evolved into a high-technology industry. Distribution is no longer simply about moving cargo on the road or via air from location A to B, but is a complex process based on intelligent system for sorting, planning, routing, and consolidation that supports faster transportation. The purpose of this paper was to investigate how RFID technology was implemented and adopted in Taiwan's logistics industry. Specifically, this paper focused on the positive influence of using RFID technology on the industry and the strategical benefits the RFID system had provided to companies, which had accepted and utilized this technology.
