Unipart Logistics, Intermec Technologies and SAP today opened the world’s first logistics centre dedicated to improving business process through the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology at Unipart’s million sq ft warehousing facility in Oxford. The facility, called the Global Enterprise Model (GEM), is a scaled down working model of the end-to-end value chain from raw material supplier to the final customers.

Unlike other models, GEM is not simply a paper-based, desk exercise, but a genuine scale model of the supply chain where organisations looking to simulate advanced logistics processes and technology can assess the impacts and benefits in a risk-free environment which closely matches the real world.

Unipart Logistics’ GEM Project Manager, Carl Powell, said: “The facility can be used for RFID trials to help build the business case for real-life implementations. By using a working scale model of the supply chain, senior managers without a logistics background, can rapidly grasp the opportunities this technology offers in increased efficiencies.
