German fashion group Gerry Weber will roll out RFID technology combining inventory management and loss prevention in a new deal with Avery Dennison.

It will use the RFID solution in over 25m garments a year through an RFID chip imbedded in a care label, a statement said.

This solution is aimed to optimise logistics and retail processes, reduce theft and ensure stores are well stocked with popular items.

"The decision for the RFID roll out is a true milestone for our company," says Gerry Weber International AG chairman Gerhard Weber. "We invite all textile apparel suppliers to embrace the introduction of RFID to achieve significant cost savings, improved efficiency and greater transparency in retail."
