Switzerland-based, Sokymat, a world supplier of RFID transponders that recently acquired Cubit Electronics GmbH, will change that company’s name to Sokymat GmbH.

FKI Logistex, Louisville, signed a $24.7-million contract with the U.S. Postal Service last year, making it one of the largest material handling contracts awarded by the USPS in 2004.

The Raymond Corp., Greene, N.Y., is supplying trucks for a working RFID warehouse, or “living lab,” in Alberta, Canada. The joint venture with three other North American companies is helping assess the value, productivity and return on investment of RFID in the materials handling world. RFID requires no physical contact between the pallet or case and the scanning device. That means lift truck operators do not have to dismount or otherwise expend effort and time to record the receipt, movement or placements of loads.
Florence, Ky.-based Blue Star brought together the leading RFID vendors and the channel’s top resellers and integrators for the first RFID Summit in January. At the three-day Summit, BlueStar’s partner SATO America offered full RFID certification training on SATO RFID products to qualified VAR attendees. The RFID Today Summit and SATO’s certification classes marked the first RFID training certification of its kind, making training and RFID products available to value-added resellers on a wide-scale basis.
