A packaging manufacturer is using state-of-the-art technology at the company’s warehouse to move pallets to conveyors to prepare for distribution. The current system can identify when each pallet is loaded, sized and placed into or taken out of storage. Learn how the firm is expanding the system’s use by installing an RFID reader at the loading dock, in order to extend that visibility to the shipping of goods and automatically update the finished goods inventory. Hear how it can also share that data with its customers, enabling them to view which products have been manufactured by inputting an order number linked to specific pallet IDs, and thereby learn whether those cartons are in storage or have been shipped.
