United Parcel Service – Wrong size, wrong color, wrong style, just simply wrong for you? With consumers breaking online shopping records, post-holiday merchandise returns and exchanges will extend the UPS® (UPS) holiday peak shipping season into the New Year.

National Returns Day is Jan. 6, 2016, when consumers are predictable to ship more than a million packages back to retailers on that single day. By the end of the first week of January, UPS anticipates to deliver more than 5 million returns packages – 500,000 more than last year.

According to the UPS Pulse of the Online Shopper™ study, 45% of consumers have returned an item by shipping it back to a retailer – 42% of those said they made a new online purchase during the process.

With the flagship solution, PN5180, NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NXPI), co-inventor of Near Field Communication (NFC), declared the starting of a new era in the evolution of NFC to bring intuitive proximity technology everywhere. PN5180 is an advanced, multi-protocol (ISO/IEC 15693, Felica™, MIFARE® and ISO/IEC 14443A/B) NFC frontend that delivers more efficient, robust, and reliable operation, even in harsh environments. Building on the success of the PN512, PN5180 delivers four times more output power and is designed to enable state-of-the-art readers for contactless payment without the need of an additional booster.

“NFC moves increasingly into new and more demanding applications, now transportation terminals need to support EMV payment schemes and have to interact with new payment or transit form factors like NFC-enabled phones, wearables and even rings. The requirements for performance, reliability and interoperability therefore expand,” said Pradip Mistry, vice president of research and development at Cubic Transportation Systems. “NXP succeeds to bring NFC to the next level in technology with the PN5180 and its new features like Dynamic Power Control and Adaptive Wave Shaping which enables us to deliver an unmatched user experience to our end customers.”
