Item-level Tagging in Distribution and Logistics Increase visibility and accuracy of the supply chain by providing real-time visibility to product
Track your returnable racks, tote boxes, roll cages, pallets & trays through the supply chain
Millions of returnable transport items (RTIs) such as containers, bins, pallets, racks and kegs move through the global supply chain, providing the most fundamental way in which parts, materials and finished goods reach their destination. However, the inability to effectively track these returnable and reusable assets creates considerable productivity, labor, cost and time inefficiencies. The end result is that companies spend more money purchasing additional logistics assets and hiring adequate labor to manage them.
More automated, accurate inventory processes; no line-of-sight required; multiple scans captured at once
Returnable containers are the primary method of transporting parts throughout modern supply chains. The use of returnable containers:
To track Returnable/Reusable Transport Items, we use radio frequency identification (RFID) or Beacon technology to help improve the management of assets. Our specially designed SmartX HUB system identifies individual pieces of equipment and tracks them across different sites to ensure they are in the place where they are needed.
The SmartX HUB solution dramatically raises asset efficiency, helping you to reduce purchases and optimize your rental program. Shrinkage control reduces lost, stolen or misplaced assets, with annual savings in the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Tagging assets allows for automation of paper work associated with despatch and receipt, so you can optimise transport for the collection of your assets and improve your service levels. Reducing the levels of lost reusable transport packaging can allow you to invest in higher quality RTIs which provide longer life cycles.
