ABSTRACT

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an emerging technology that has been increasingly used in logistics and supply chain management in recent years, particularly in the US and Europe. World’s largest retailers including Kenyan based logistics firms are increasingly considering that their suppliers be RFID compliant. Despite many useful applications, there are major impediments to RFID adoption in the logistics and supply chain within Kenyan firms. Many Kenya ports authority have not fully embraced RFID use and those that have embraced it are yet to achieve optimum benefits that the technology promises. The study sought to examine the determinants influencing adoption of radio frequency identification at the Kenya ports authority by the Kenya ports authority. The guiding objectives of this study were to find out the influence of cost of capital, skills and competency, data sharing/data privacy and government policy on the adoption of radio frequency identification at the Kenya ports authority. The study employed the use of descriptive research design, which helped in the collection of relevant information from the Kenya ports authority. Key findings of the study shows that government policy is the key factor influencing adoption of radio frequency identification.
