Pharma/Health Care: RFID Delivers Shipping Accuracy and Cost Savings
All VideosPharma/Health Care: RFID Delivers Shipping Accuracy and Cost Savings
DePuy, a division of Johnson & Johnson, receives more than half of its ExpressKit orders to be shipped out on the same day they arrive. Employees had to bar-code-scan each component in each kit twice—sometimes more than 100 per kit—then repack them before shipping. Learn how the company implemented an RFID system that dramatically improved shipping accuracy, shortened the kits’ typical check-in and -out times and made it possible to more accurately bill surgeons for the items they actually use.
