A warehouse in Singapore has deployed a solution that reduces the amount of time employees spend searching for reels of cable by 90 percent. When warehouse workers process an order, they need to locate large reels of specific products and then return them to storage so that those reels can be accessed again for future orders. The warehouse contains thousands of reels, and a single worker can spend 30 to 45 minutes locating the correct one. Since the firm has installed a solution that employs passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tags on reels, forklift drivers now require only about five minutes to retrieve a cable reel. Learn how the process of retrieving reels has been reduced from 30 to 45 minutes, down to about five minutes.
