March 23, 2005

Kimberly-Clark receives RFID data from both Wal-Mart and Target Corp., which has set a June deadline for its top 100 suppliers to start using RFID.

He added that some retailers and suppliers are working with EPCglobal Inc. to define parameters for exchanging RFID data electronically.
