Few people outside the Supply Chain and Logistics Economy (SCALE) realize how huge this industry is in NEO and the world. A hot SCALE technology transforming the industry is Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and many NEO economy and technology leaders are exploring how important this "cluster" is to our region's future.

Local Supply Chain and Logistics entrepreneurs, industrialists, academics and professionals have established a REALNEO SCALE Community Of Interest Link and book of related content, and hold many strategy meetings to collaborate on making NEO a stronger factor in global SCALE, offering our universities and industries the opportunity to share with MIT the scope of opportunity obvious to them, as illustrated by...

MIT CTL: "The potential of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
technology lies beyond the tag-sized vision that currently
predominates. Picture a central nervous system that captures,

RFID-powered global networks are starting to take shape. The U.S.
Department of Defense (DoD) is deploying such a network to capture
benefits in its globe-spanning supply chain." RFID supply chain management and logistics.
