LTC s.r.l. (Logistics and Traffic Center), an Italian third-party logistics firm that fulfills orders for fashion companies, has implemented an RFID reader infrastructure at its warehouse and fulfillment center in Florence, in order to track individual fashion items tagged by various producers whose goods move through its facilities.

LTC, which fulfills orders that include 10 million items each year, expects to process 400,000 RFID-tagged items in 2010 for Royal Trading s.r.l., which owns the Serafini brand of high-end men's and ladies footwear, and San Giuliano Ferragamo, with its Fashionis brand.
