The quality and safety of pharmacy, which have become essential for the lives of the residents, directly concerns people’s health and security. The pharmacy logistics is still at the starting stage and exists a lot of problems at present in our country, so it would affect the management and monitoring of the pharmacy quality, bringing the security menace. The first section of this paper analyses the characteristics of radio frequency identification (short for RFID) technology and the pharmacy logistics system. Then RFID technology is introduced into the Pharmacy Logistics System, that is to expound the application of RFID in the pharmacy logistics system; the service level of the pharmacy logistics system would be upgraded, and the supervision of the pharmacy would be strengthened.
